Did your bike tire pop? just found one at the dump? here is an instructable on how you can use that tire and make a "green" (black) bracelet.

Step 1: Tire

Picture of Tire
Obtain a bicycle tire somehow, steal our neighbors (don't recommend this) or find one.

Step 3: Cut the tubing into a strip

cut off the air lever thing and make a slit all the way down from that point until you have one loooonng strip.

Step 4: Marking

measure your wrist on the rubber and make a mark. add about 2 inches and cut there.

Step 7: Clamp

make 3 holes using the knife as shown in pics, then push something (bolt) through the holes to hold them 3 together. once held together, clamp or have someone hold that end. when clamped, begin to braid the ends really(!) tightly.

Step 9: String

push a 1foot piece of string through the holes opposite from the bolt and tie tight. then wrap the string around that tube 3 times and tie again.

Step 10: Tie again

go through the layers on the other side and wrap 3 times again. this time when done wrapping, tie to the other side to bring both ends together.

Thanks for viewing. hoped you liked it and try it.

there are other methods for "weaving/braiding" you might prefer. get any leather working book and do some research.

I don't understand why you would even mention stealing a full wheel to get the tube. Seriously.

STEP 1: Go to a bike repair shop and ask for a old tube and you will walk away with more tubes than you could ever want to braid. If you really want the feeling of crime, "steal" some from their dumpster.
