Enhancing concrete by adding different types of suitable materials is a very attractive field within concrete research society. The use of waste tires was introduced into concrete to reduce its brittle nature and its loading toughness. Scrap tires consider the current significant discarded waste which results in major environmental issues where researchers and environmentalists have taken seriously. This study provides an overview about the tires rubber as a useful material in civil engineering applications. It can be inferred that tire rubber particles, in the form of tire chips used to substitute coarse aggregate and crumb rubber particles, used as substitution for the fine aggregate in concrete. Findings also have reported that the inclusion of rubber particles (fine or coarse) reduce the compressive and tensile strength. The utilization of worn tires in civil engineering applications results in problems diminishing associated with scrap tire management all over the world.
