|Rollo Rubbernoski and some of his spare tires.|
He gave up his job as a chef at White Castle and began collecting old spare tires. He called the time he spent collecting tires, his spare time. It wasn't long until his wife made him stop bringing tires home, so he rented forty acres near the freeway and began filling it with tires of all sizes and shapes. "No one should be without a spare, spare tire!" is his slogan. He hopes to put a spare, spare tire in every trunk. Until then you'll see him climbing around on a mountain of tires near his tire office. The new business is to open August 1.
