    I like the concept of modifying my tire to work better and would like to try it on an extra set of tires i have. Any good or bad feedback from people who have grooved their tires ? Anyone in the Denver area have a groover that they would be willing to let me borrow ??

    i had a set of 38.5 /16/15 tsl's that wer half down , so they got grooved. wow the difference in traction is just amazing . we had them on my buddy's k5 , and he tugged 3 trucks, and he never sank or even lost power in the mud , even going up hill they just grabbed my 44's i have thought about grooving to get more lateral traction , but not sure since they are like new it is hard to want to groove a 450+ tire
