The “Swing Motorbike Tire Tread” is a fun and simple swing design perfect for any playground.
Made out of motorbike tires, we recommend painting them for splashes of exciting color!
This element has a low cost and can be made in combination of many materials.
Hang the tire swing with chain, rope or even rubber from other tires.
The swing is also a versatile element being able to link to many different areas of a playground; attach it to trees or a playground bridge.
