doing deadlifts on the smith machine is great to start out, but that gives you little to no stabilizer workout. even if it is a smith machine with 2-way rails.

also, deadlifts will not work the rest of your core muscles nearly as well as doing ab and oblique specific exercises, and flipping tires is a much more complicated movement than deadlifting. more comparable to a snatch or clean-and-jerk. proper deadlifting technique targets the lower back as specifically as possible, and aint even in the same ballpark as squats for overall workout.
