The tire is one of the most consumed products in the world. However, the unserviceable tire is often discarded improperly becoming a great environmental impact in the post-use. In order to evaluate an alternative disposal, the incorporation of different quantities of tire residue (up to 3.5%) in a concrete pavements with trace 1: 2.025: 2.47: 0.47 was evaluated. For all conditions the characterization of aggregates and water absorption by capillarity of the samples were carried out. In addition, the influence of the concrete age, 7, 14 and 28 days, was analyzed by axial compression and flexion tests. According to the results, it was verified that the concrete with tire residue in the axial compression test obtained greater resistance than the reference concrete, unlike the results obtained in the flexion tests. Additionally, the concrete with tire residue incorporated exhibited a water absorption less than the concrete control.
