Thanks for the replies about the Hogshead cars.  Very educational.  Completely outside of my work at the Southern in intermodal.  

If memory serves we did have some tire shipments by piggyback into the Atlanta ramp.  Goodyear was a customer, but they make more than just tires.

In the '80s and '90s Michelin shipped 50-foot boxcars of tires to a bonded warehouse in Norcross on the Stone Mountain Lead.  Mostly Railboxes if I recall correctly.
