    Giant ass hunk of rubber busted my balls. Not sure how much it weighs, the guy at the tire center said it was at least 400 (its 23.5"x ~5'8"), though I'm really just using this to work form. I didn't realize how important technique is for this, I got 3 flips my first time(more or less deadlifting it) to 15 this time (my 2nd time). Goddamn it's fun, my biceps are all bruised up from catching it, I can see why Chris says storngman training will never become popular. Any other tire flippers on here?

    That seems like it would be kinda fun, I'm sure it's much harder than it looks. I'd probably have to use my bronco tires though. :o

    It's hard to flip tires with a broken leg isn't it? :p

    You're not even flipping the whole thing so it's like half that
