I give my old Mtb tyres to the urchins who ride around in our road. When I've finished with them, there's still plenty of life left in them for doing long skids up and down the pavement with the other kids on their Halfords bikes.

Surely your butler must have poor families living near him to whom he can give them on your behalf?
car tyre fitters seem to charge 50p per tyre for "environmental disposal" and I guess they'd be only too please to take 50p for bike tyres.

Cut the beads off, stick a buckle on them and flog them to the public for £30!

Buju Banton came up with a use for them too.........

Yes and now they will be buried with huge quantities of plastic bottles, boxes and bags to reappear in people's gardens for thousands of years or the apocalypse, whichever is sooner.
