A major part of Fortnite is discovering clever ways you can use your builds, the environment, items, and weapons to get the upper hand on your opponent. Chonkers off-road tires arrived with the 16.20 update, and while they are designed for modding vehicles, the community has already discovered their other uses.
Fortnite YouTuber Ryuzanami has demonstrated several tricks you can pull off with the tires, and, surprisingly, none of them involve vehicles.
As Fortnite players have become more advanced at the building mechanics of the game, taking and getting through other players’ walls has become one of the most important aspects of the game. Ryuzanami showed that you can use the tires to phase through walls 100% of the time. If you throw the tire into the corner, push up against the wall, and break it, you are guaranteed to get through.

With the storm ever closing in, you can also use these tires to boost your movement speed. As you jump off the tire, you can continue to pick them up, repeating the process until you’re safe from the storm. Or, mid-fight, you can throw the tires on the ground below you and use them to take height from your opponents.
Once you have this height, you can also use the tires to avoid fall damage. Throw the tires on the floor below you then build a floor above, jump on top of the tires, then they will remain below your feet and break your fall. Just don’t pick up the tires on the way down or you’ll fall to your death.
Also, using their bouncy nature, you can throw them at opponents forcing them to take fall damage. However, this is extremely situational and is more fun than a competitive strategy.
With these tips in mind, keeping one of your inventory slots free for tires can provide you with a plethora of opportunities to get the upper hand in build fights.
