I made one as well, out of a floater tire, but it only holds about 700 lb of DDGS. If my math is right, I don't think I could get 3500 lb of DDGS in two tires and still be able to lift them with my bale bed. 1750 lb of DDGS plus the tire is more than I could handle.
1750 lb ddgs / 15 lb/cu ft = 117 cu ft
Need a cylinder 4 ft wide x 6 ft tall for 117 cu ft. That's a big (heavy) tire. Maybe fabricating one out of metal would be lighter.
