Tyres have been dumped at two Mid Suffolk villages this week.
Around 40 slick tyres used in racing were left at Church Road, Creeting St Mary, while a second pile of five tyres was found at Coddenham.
Mid Suffolk District Council has cleared them away but says this sort of fly-tipping costs the council more than £50,000 a year.
Dumping waste illegally is a serious criminal offence that carries a fine of up to £50,000 (unlimited if the case goes to the crown court) or a prison sentence of up to five years.
The council treats fly-tipping very seriously and will usually prosecute anyone caught.
A council spokeswoman said: “People can dispose of tyres via Sita [a recycling and resource management company] and they are then taken into Sackers [in Great Blakenham] for disposal – the costs of which are met by Suffolk County Council.”
