      Also, those tire treads weigh quite a bit more than standard shingles.
      I doubt the structure was built for that extra load

      They could be light truck tires, you don't know.

      Even then, they weigh quite a bit more than shingles especially considering you need an extra layer of waterproofing since these won't melt together like asphalt shingles.
      And you have to use the right tires- up north I guess you need snow tires.

      Snow tires would be a total mistake. This is the one time that you want to use summer tires or even slicks in the winter so the snow would just slide right off.

      Yep, get R compounds and it would be easy to roof the corners.

      I just saw a Volkswagen Rabbit pickup drive by with a stack in the bed. I wasn't able to snap a pic in time though.
