Those tires are thick enough you could cut ag lugs into them and have a cheap pair of tires!  :worshippy1:

The least ply rating I've seen on airplane tires is 10 ply.  The beads are insanely wide.  The used airplane tires we buy for implements have had the beads sliced narrower, making them possible to mount without special equipment.

Fifteen dollars seems very cheap.  Anyone know their true value (approximately)?

Someone over on the other place used them with the airplane rims. He made custom axles on a Wheel Horse to accommodate them.

We had a gravity wagon with a JD running gear years ago that had 15" airplane tires. They are so thick that I doubt you could pierce them with an 8 penney nail.

Put them on your car and win any burnout competition.  Mount large spikes in them and aerate your lawn.  Turn them inside out and use for planters (Call me when you do this, I would like to see it).  Sipe them very deep and see how they do in snow.  Big dog's lifetime chew toy.  Cut them in half and use on a truck to push others vehicles.  Cut your own lugs.

Seriously though, If I could have thought of anything to do with them, I wouldn't have posted this as it's about 20 minutes from me (in the other direction).  Good luck.  They seems very cheap to me if you can find a use for them.  Good luck.
