Stacey, funnily enough we did get them from a car.  It was through freecycle, which is where people get rid of things they no longer want for free, (you just have to pick them up).  These were still on the rims. 

We also got some tyres from a garage that changes tyres, they have to pay to get rid of them so welcome anyone who wants them to take them away.  These ones come without the rims and you can choose any size you like.  These are easier to turn inside out to make the planters.  You need ones with soft sides as these turn well.

Nutcutlet you may be able to work it out from my other thread, drawn shape wrong way so will end up looking like a flower when cut out if not you end up with points and then when turned inside out the tyre is much bigger

Hello and Evening Forkers

Me knackered today having a rest day

Yesterday dug up and sorted a pile of dirt and compost out for the new tyre planter for the station and took up the station, skateboarded it down the slope , well with some plants and bulbs and all the dirt, cleared the litter away as well 

It was a sunny day quite warm it did feel like spring
