Have you got old rims, wheels and/or tires cluttering up your garage or property? While it’s good to have spare tires on hand for all seasons, especially if you go through seasonal changes from winter tires to all-season tires, old worn-out tires only serve to clutter up your property and can be a challenge to dispose of.
A lot of car and vehicle parts like rims, wheels and tires can be resold, depending on their condition, or traded in to the manufacturer or at car parts shops. Scrap parts and junk, however, can be removed easily with the assistance of reputable junk haulers found here on JunkGator.
Rim, wheel and tire recycling and disposal services near you
Sometimes, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, especially when it comes to automotive parts and components. Old rims, hubcaps, and other parts can be sold as antiques to collectors for a pretty penny. On the other hand, many old car parts are simply junk and cannot be resold easily.
If you’re not holding on to antique car parts and simply want those old rims, wheels and tires gone, there are a number of options available to you. Remember the three R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle. Reducing how often you need new tires, for example, might not be good if it comes at the expense of safety. Reusing and recycling are often the most realistic solutions, with scrap metal buyers and recycling centers widely accepting rims, wheels and tires.

Frequently asked questions
How often should rims be replaced?
Vehicle manufacturers normally recommend that your wheels and rims are replaced at least every 60,000 to 90,000 miles. This can be done either under routine warranty servicing or as needed.
How do I get rid of unwanted tires?
Unwanted tires that cannot be reused for your vehicle can be turned into tire swings, used in gardens, or for other creative artistic projects. If you simply want old tires gone, then it’s best to have them recycled or hauled away by a junk removal company near you.
Can I dispose of tires for free?
Quite often, car parts stores that sell tires will gladly replace your old tires with new ones and dispose of the old ones, although this isn’t exactly free since you’re paying for the new tires. In some cases, you may be able to haul old tires to a recycling center for free. Check your municipal or county waste department for more information.
What happens to old tires?
Old tires used to be a real environmental problem in the 20th century, but today most of them, up to 80%, are successfully recycled. This works out to about 240 million recycled tires every year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
