About our Tire Tanks
Midwest Tire Tanks utilizes used OTR tires from the mines that are no longer able to be used for actual haul tires. We recycle the OTR tires and through precise manufacturing and simple installation techniques we convert them into water tanks for your livestock. Rubber tire tanks are your solutions to all your livestock watering needs. Use them in pastures, under windmills, on water lines or in corrals.
Benefits of Using Rubber Tire Tanks:
- Tire Tanks are less expensive over their lifetime than steel and require very low maintenance
- Tire Tanks won't break down and are guaranteed for life
- The 4 to 6 inch thick rubber insulates the water keeping it cooler in summer compared to a steel tank
- In colder weather you'll save time not having to chop as much ice because the black rubber absorbs and holds more heat
- Tire tanks are easy to set up with a 4 step installation process. (see video below)
- Tanks are heavy rubber and can stand up to your livestock and equipment implements
- We have many stocked dealers. Delivery is also available from our Production Headquarters in Ellsworth.
- 6' to 13' sizes available. We can also produce tanks to your specifications.
Whatever size tank you want, we can cut it to the depth you need. We will also work with you to meet you government cost-share requirements.
We currently carry sizes that range from 6 to 13 feet in diameter.
*Gallons of water are approximate based on 26" depth.
How To Make Your Tire Tank Hold Water:
1) Place tire tank where you will be using it and fill the center in with dirt, at least to the bead of the tire.
2) Using Quikrete, fill the rest of the bottom opening.
3) Start filling the tank with water. Only enough to cover the Quikrete by and inch or two.
4) Let the Quikrete set and cure. Then, finish filling water and your tank is ready to use.
