I was looking for some homemade equipment idea and thought this was pretty neat so I thought I would share it with you guy. Hope someone else finds it useful.

Concrete Tire

From Vince over at Vince's Muscle Shop we get easy instructions on how to make a tire filled with concrete for heavy carries.

You don't need the big drill - you can get a cheap 3" hole saw for a regular 3/8" drill. The rubber will grab at the bit, so don't let it torque your arm. A 16" knobby tire would work well and would be over 200. You can also just lay the tire flat and fill up one side of the wheel with concrete. If you are really clever, you could 1/2" x 3" bolts through the lug holes cast into the concrete so the center piece can be removed. You would probably have to lay some padding in first so the concrete does not bond to the steel.

I like it. I have some old wheels laying around that I might try this with.

This is a good idea. I'm having the "Matt Cole(Matt76) Memorial Appliance Games" this spring. I'll make one of these up for everyone to carry around for time. Thanks.
