Bury them deep or make a huge fire and burn off the rubber and save the steel for scrap.

I'd be careful burning rubber, I know it's a big fine in this state. One use would be to make ground stable, like a bad spot on a trail or drive. Lay them down and put a layer of gravel over the top.

I just cashed one in today @ 10 cents a pound (about $38 per side). Metal recycle place said it was good to go.

Could remove the track guards and lay them down on you shop floor to drive your dozer in on them.

You can cut them up and use them to drive across driveways and sensitive yards

I like this idea. I've done similar with tires.
