    Bo are you talking about having your tires incised to give you more traction? I think most tire stores could incise them for you! If I remember correctly back when dirt was young, you know like me, the local tractor pullers used a soldering iron to grove their tires.

    Groover.

    That's what threw me. Tire groover - different from siping.

    Could you get away with using a router bit?
