    Default Tyre pile raiders.

    Concidering the majority of drifters (street drifters anyway) get there rear tyres from tyre piles I thought this would be an appropriate section for this thread.

    I go on a "tyre run" a couple of nights per week now and lately in Melbourne (im sure it probably happens in other states too) ill get to a tyre pile only to find that someone has been there already and simply thrown tyres in every direction possible to get to the ones they want.

    All im saying is that with the growing number of tyre shops locking up there second hand tyres within a cage or in the shop it self, the disrespect for the pile certainly cant be helping. If a shop opens up every morning to find there tyre pile scattered across the car park they are just going to start locking them up like everyone else.

    All im suggesting (and yes I know its not just E7/86 drivers, but also other sliders and conformodoore drivers) is that if we need to move tyres, just move them neatly aside as im sure we dont want them to be locked up, just as much as the tyre shops probably dont want to pay for a cage to lock them up.

    yeah funny thing is if you want to get 2nd hand tyres they charge you for them even if they are in the throw out pile in a lot of cases.. but um hey they have to pay around $2 a tyre i believe to dispose of them.

    add to that you would prob also be willing to pay cash to have them fitted. so eerr yeah they shoot themselfs in the foot lamo

    dont forget that its trespassing is illegal.

    I get my seconds for free. I always just ask the shops also they usually let me have a gander.

    some tire shops cut there tires up and put them in a bin to fit more in, over here but where i get mine from they just give them away for free and sometime fitted for free depending how busy they are, if not just rip out the good ol levers and ninja that shit.

    I once did tyre runs... until I got charged with possession of tainted goods.. fucking bullshit... a day wasted in court and a 1 year good behavior bond resulted... and half the tyres you end up getting have a fuckin hole or bubble in them or some shit in the end... I rather just get freshys, although if your just shredding them I guess it is better with freebies..

    All our tyres are locked up, except for the ones that had sidewall puntures and 4X4 ones. So fuck you all, lol. Nah it's good, because it means all the tyres are for me and my mates, lol.
