Geotechnical properties of pure fine and coarse grained tire-chips and their mixtures (10, 20, 30, 40 and 50%) with a cohesive clayey soil were investigated through a series of soil mechanical tests in order to investigate possibilities of their usage as a lightweight fill material. Grain size and Atterberg limits analysis, permeability, direct shear and compaction tests were performed on the clayey soil, tire chips (both fine and coarse) alone and their mixtures.
