Abstract –In this paper study in rubber tyre. Using scrap tyres as construction materials in civil engineering is of growing interest. Commercially produced tire chips and powder size 20and 4.0 mm are used for partial replacement of aggregates in concrete. A mix proportion of 1:1.5:3 with water-cement ratio of 0.40 was used in this study. The percentage of  replace coarse aggregate with chipped rubber are  2.5%, 5%, 15% and fine aggregate replace with rubber powder constantly 5% by weight. The practice of these applications needs the optimum percentage of rubber aggregate which replace with natural aggregate in concrete mix. The aim of this study is to observe the optimum percentage of rubber aggregate which replace with natural aggregate in concrete, and found cost differences between them.
