Default Sledgehammers and Tires for conditioning

I had never entertained the whole sledgehammer to tire thing until recently because we just moved into a place that has a little backyard.

Where can I get old tires at? I've read that sometimes people find tires on the side of the road or go to a junkyard. The only other idea I had was to wait until I had to get my tires changed on one of the cars and just grab that one?

Also what sledgehammers do people use for this? In Mike Mahlers article on T-nation today he said to start with an 8 pounder and work up to the 16 lb'er.

"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
