  • How Tire Shredding Protects Wildlife

    One of the most revolutionary inventions in the history of mankind was the wheel, and the best upgrade to that invention was the rubber tire, which overcame the limitations of wooden or metal wheels and made it possible to have smooth rides at fast speeds. However, there is a significant drawback to using rubber tires: eventually, they get too worn out to be useful as tires anymore and have to ...

  • Tire Shredding: The Best Alternative

    From cars and trucks to planes, tractors, and forklifts, tires are used for a wide variety of vehicles. And those tires don’t last forever. Regardless of how many miles a tire travels, it should not be used longer than ten years past its manufacture date, as the rubber will grow brittle and can crack. This isn’t usually a problem, though, since most tires are replaced within three or ...
