  • Tire swings are a form of swing made from a car tire suspended by a heavy rope from a sturdy tree branch. This is an old-fashoned, simple swing commonly seen in the country, near farm houses.

    Special factory-made "tire swings" are suspended by three chains and are suspended from heavy beams and are mounted horizontally so that more than one child can sit along the top edge. Some dangerous stunts can be done using these swings so they are not as commonly used in playgrounds these days.
