    Do you mean re-tread?
    There are companies out there that specializing in re-treading tires. They usually do tractor trailer tires, but I've seen a mud tire pattern before. There used to be an add in the older 4x4 mags that was for a re-treading company. I forgot the name, but a search on google may find them. I don't know if they will do a tire that size. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Also, you won't get the Ground Hawg pattern you want...they use whatever they have. And, if I remember correctly, the price for a re-treaded tire didn't jump out at me as being a good deal...but it's worth looking into for a 38.

    I don't think there is enough rubber before the cords to regroove like you're thinking. Now, I had a set of Buckshot Mudders that had wear bars that connected the center lugs at 1/2 tread and created a zig-zag pattern. I always thought about cutting those out to open up the pattern again.
