The increase in volume of vehicles ultimately increases the number of waste tires. The proper disposal or reutilization of waste tires is a challenge. This study is aimed to utilize the steel fibers of waste tires as reinforcement in concrete. Concrete cylinders were cast with addition of different percentages of steel fibers (0-2%) and length (10-20 mm). The fresh and hard properties of concrete reinforced with different percentages of steel fibers and lengths were observed. It is seen that splitting tensile strength of concrete increased with increase in the length of fiber and with the increase in the percentage of fiber. The inclusion of the fibers in concrete causes the reduction in the workability of concrete.
