Thought you said you were going to cover them with dirt. If you use hair pins made out of rebar, going from the outside one one tire to the next, then fill the tires with dirt or gravel you will have a good base.

Well, I didn't 'exactly' say that..I said "(Texas Environmental Quality Board allows this use as long as the tires are covered with soil)".

But yeah, sure...that's what I'm gonna do, just as soon as find a place on this low lying piece of property (that's already one big hole), to dig a deeper hole and get some dirt.

Maybe I’d cable them and pin them down in that case. Could take pressure off your anchors.

1/2 in Dewalt cobalt pilot point bits at Lowes . I have used them on steel belted tire treads to put 3/8 bolts through . You had better have a good drill !

Just cut a slit about 3 " on each side , cut in direction of tread. A screwdriver will spread slit enough to thread Cable
