    Hey Stephen, question about your grooved 42\'s...

    I just ordered my 42's, /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif and plan to groove them to match your's. I'm curious what size groover blade you used in this pic? Looks like about 1/4"-3/8"?

    It's about 3/8" I think, it matches up pretty good with the stock interco cut between the big lugs. I don't know what the number is but that's the width.
    I've been pretty happy with it so far, I can see every leading edge is fuzzed off so I know they're all biting. I think it helps the carcass act broken in a little before it's fully broken in too.
    I've considered adding a couple of sipes across the blocks also, I've siped some TSL's before and really liked it.

    I think you're going to like them, I've been pretty happy with this size all along, and can't find anything wrong with the cutting. This last moab trip had everything from big boulders to slickrock full throttle rips and they did it all pretty well. Although I usually wish for a set of 37" MTR's when I'm on hell's revenge.
