Like a tire fire that won't get you a visit from the cops.
Who doesn't love a nice winter tire fire on the lawn! Why, it's been a tradition since the first time your great-great-grandpa took his first tire and threw it beside the driveway, planning to get back to it later! But in today's world of homeowner associations and environmental regulations, you can't just light tires on fire like it was still the 1940s. That's why you need a fire pit. Same warmth. Less social hatred and risk of self-harm.
