Uncontrolled issues of disposal waste tire rubber create huge environmental impact and health hazards. An alternative viable solution to minimize these problems is by utilizing the waste rubber tires in construction materials, which in turn can reduce the use of natural resources and eventually lessen the cost of construction. This paper mainly focuses on the use of waste rubber tires particles in concrete with different set of composition ranging from 3 to 12% of cement replacement. Concrete cubes size of 150mm x 150mm x 150mm were prepared for compressive strength test, and concrete cylinders size of 150m x 300mm were prepared for splitting tensile test. The result shows that the compressive and split tensile strength of concrete with rubber as cement replacements is 6-21% lower than the normal concrete.
