My husbands car tire needed changing a couple of years back and the tires were still lying around...I saw  this on Instructables :-D and thought hmmm...there are possibilities :-) ...but i wanted it much simpler .. and I didn't want it to be obvious that it's a  tire. I wanted it to look sooooo good that people would think I bought it from a store :-)...and perhaps ask me where I bought it from...else how can I  show off my transformation! :-D

But if you want Redneck....
According to the DIY Redneck Guide It needs to look and have  "The glorious absence of sophistication"
So I'll show you how :-)


I have put up plenty of pictures with instructions on them...so if you like a quick look without reading the whole instructable...you can follow the steps in the pictures. If you like it...and want to try it...you can read it at your leisure :-) .

Step 1: Things you would need!

Tires! yes... we are going to give them a new life
drill
screws
nuts and bolt
1/2" thick ply wood.
fabric
rope
sponge for cusioning
stapler
glue
wheels - 4 per ottoman/ table
and a willingness to work hard :-)
I made it!
<p>This looks awesome!</p>
<p>TRU DAT</p>
<p>you know i would mind having this in my house when i GET ONE GOTTI</p>
<p>I love what you do with the old tyres, am going to try it myself. By the way tyres only smell if they are new, on a car or are being burned. The biggest problem is the dust from brakes that tend to stick on the tyre and can easily be removed with soap and burning rubber causes toxic fumes.</p>
<p>Any tire gives off dangerous fumes. </p><p>That is why cars are kept outside or in a garage. </p><p>Especially harmful to young children </p>
<p>Sorry....but if i can bottle up the smell...which is not there..I would....and send it to you :-) cause there is zero smell. If it was so dangerous there would not be so much tire furniture online :-) .</p><p>Have a nice day!</p>
This is terrific. My only question is this: what about that rubber smell that comes with tires? Were you able to get rid of it? If so how? Or is it not an issue?
Thanks! <br>These are very old tires....so they don't have the rubber smell...however...if you wash well ...I used dishwasher liquid...and remove grease...there would be no smell... <br>if there were....my husband would have surely mentioned it! haha
<p>The smell is poisonous</p>
Hi, would like to know if they smell over time or no problem like that after a good washing? love your tutorial.
<p>Tires give off harmful fumes forever. Keep them outside</p>
<p>Thanks! No they never smell after washing. I have plenty of tire furniture in my house and no one has said anything about a smell :-)</p>
<p>See this video <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w10rqzUGKBM" rel="nofollow">How to Recycle your old Tire into a DIY Golden Table</a></p>
<p>A++</p>
<p>Awesome! I need one of those ;)</p>
<p>Thanks!</p><p>Sorry for the late reply, I have been busy with my newborn baby these <br>last four months and only now I'm slowly picking up my rhythm :-)</p>
<p>Congrats! No need to apologize... :)</p>
Hay<br>I wondering if it's better to use a plexiglas instead the wood, if I gonna put it in my balcony?!
<p>Yes That would be a good idea :-)</p><p>Sorry for the late reply, I have been busy with my newborn baby these <br>last four months and only now I'm slowly picking up my rhythm ;-)</p>
<p>Any idea how much rope it took to wrap the tires? </p>
<p>Actually they sell in roll bunches here and I bought 3 bunches. Each bunch is about 8ft long. I forgot to count how many in a bunch...sorry!</p>
<p>when the kids are playing on these do you have a problem with them trying to collapse, or did i miss the inside support?</p>
<p>Below is the link for the type of tires you have. Hope it helps.</p><p><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Tire-To-Stools/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Tire-To-Stools/</a></p><p>Sorry I didn't have time to upload it ear</p>
<p>I guess you have got a tire that is not so hard. My tires were very hard. I think they call it low profile tires. I got a couple of tires like the one you mentioned.</p><p>You have 2 options.</p><p>1. Make the seat circle larger so that its about 1&quot; less than the outer circumference of the tire. There by giving the seat more support. In such tires having the seat about the size of the rim is not a good idea. I know as I'm working on such tires now for a project.</p><p>2. Glue 4 dowels between the 2 rims of the tires. You could also nail the supports.</p><p>Let me know how it goes. :-) I really want to know :-)</p>
this is awesome very beautiful idea
