    Goody5, you cannot be serious!  I'd say about 35, how's that?  Are you really gonna build one?  Where you putting this thing?  Do you sell tires? Oh sorry, you're the one asking a question! My bad!

      Actually rutley believe it or not I use to be a tire builder (as we were called) at a major tire manufacturer, and I count some where around 22 tires.

      I only ever saw one that was stacked small to large, loader tire, backhoe, dump truck, car tires, etc.  I wonder if someone's gonna jump out of it. It's probably a skeeter breeder too.  It's in Elmer, NJ.

    This is one of the most awesome questions I've seen in awhile. I'd say it takes about 22 more or less.

    Not too many we hope, or he'll get 'tired out'. Give him a coupla' dozen - give or take the odd 'spare tyre' (UK spelling, also means 'overweight') and he should roll well down the highway, singing Willie Nelson's 'On the road again'.
