    Anyone have any ideas for a pattern? I'm looking for more lateral traction. Pict's would be helpful.

    Pretty well but they are still mud bog tires IMO. Thats why I swapped out to some TSLs.

    grooving has no ill effects if done properly and by that i mean not too deep and in a decent direction of the grooves. just so they have enough meat from the casing to be held on and not rip off under load. i approve all the previously loaded pics! Mr k5 has a good tread pattern for trail riding and mild rocks.
