Tire swings were great. If the rope was attached really high up in a tree you got to enjoy a long slow pendulous motion that was quite different than a swing set. But, there was always a hidden danger to tire swings. You would pull it back to a good starting position, hop up into the air and push your legs through the hole. Just as you start to enjoy the wind rushing against your face, you hear the familiar sloshing sound of doom as the rain water that had collected inside the tire overnight soakes the bottom of your shorts.
