30 tires And that's just the one's not on rims.
Like Tonto sez,
toda dump

Hi ho silver away.
 
Would have been a gold mine to me many years ago. You see, most tires for my Indian Scout were selected from such an accumulation. Most (all?) were "may-pops" but better than nothing........until they did pop.......Hang On!........
 
Had to drive 15 miles and pay $2.00 a tire to get rid of them.
I've done this every two or three years, for as long as I can remember.

Here in the Phoenix metro area they have been grinding them up and mixing them into paving asphalt. Then using that to coat city freeways and highways. You wouldn’t believe how much quieter it makes the freeways. When you’re driving and you come off of the standard road and onto the rubberized asphalt it’s like somebody just turned the volume way down inside your car.
It’s a great way to repurpose those old tires, they don’t allow them in the landfills and we had dumps that were literally mountains of used tires and every once in a while they catch on fire and OMG! They burn for days and bury the city in black smoke!
Like this one near me from a couple years ago.

Keeping a couple of tires around can come in handy as a cushion if you ever need to lay the bike down, which you might want to do if you want to take the clutch cover off without draining the oil, for example. Welding the kickstand boss is another example.
