Place the tire vertically in front of you. Kick your right leg high over the tire in a windmill movement from left to right to work your quads. Then switch legs. To feel the burn even more, squat in between kicks, sitting as low as possible while tightening your glutes. Make sure your feet face forward and your back stays straight, always looking ahead.
