The tire place we go to is great. We offered the guy $20 for his trouble, but he wouldn't even take it. Apparently it's pretty spendy to pay someone to come out and haul them away for recycling, so they're glad when someone takes a few off their hands.
So what would you say is a good weight to start off with? 10 or 12#? I'm thinking 8 seems light but then again I've never done anything with a sledgehammer other than actual work.
