tire flip exercise

Ok, there are used commercial toyo tires near my house and I'm thinking of using one of them for "tire flips" exercise. Have you tried doing this kind of fitness technique? Is it an effective conditioning exercise?

My Gym has a few tyres for that purpose (and also for bashing them with a sledgehammer which is also a cool workout). My advice would be to try different sizes to see which one has the right weight for you and then watch a few strongman tutorials on youtube on tyre flipping as there's a bit of technique to it. Here's a good one:

Summary: They're awesome, but choose the right tyre and work on your technique.
