Default Looking for a lead on an 18 wheeler rim for fire pit

Preferably between Slidell and Meridian, anywhere along 59 would be fantastic.

But willing to run to other places if you can be patient, I'm regularly as far east as ocean springs, west to madisonville, and south to venice.

Let me know if you hear of anything.

Thanks!

I visited a friend who has a fire pit made from the blast nozzle of an old jet fighter. He bought it as surplus somewhere along the gulf coast. Very cool.

A rimenea? Have you tried a tire shop that handles 18 wheeler tires? They may have a damaged one for cheap or free.

a skidder rim makes a great fire pit since its even wider. but you'll have a hell of a time moving it

First tire dealer you see that does tractor trailers stop and ask. That is generally where they are and end up in scrap metal. So they should part with them reasonable. Usually they are misshapen wheels that no longer balance or seat the tire bead properly.

Rob, I would drive down Almonaster and check those crappy scrap places between Old Gentilly and Downman. I will go home from work that way today and text you if I see anything.

Rob, I didn't see any but I did see about a million tires. There are a few places closer to 510 on Almonaster that looked like they may have some old 18 wheelers...may be worth asking some of them.

I can get you one but it may be after Jan 2 before the tire can be removed. I think I can get it today if you want it with tire. That would make a purty fire

This isn't exactly what you are asking for, but I bought one of these fire pits and I couldn't be happier. It should last me a lifetime.

Thank you for the heads up.

I actually know vessel callin in real life and he's pretty close to me so it will work out perfectly.

I appreciate everyone's help, thank you guys!

Oh and yes this is a redneck fire pit - it's for my hunting camp
