    R4 Tire Siping

    Started on my tires yesterday. Took me one tire to realize pushing the groover is better than pulling it. one more tire to go.

    Lols great, I’ve always been a fan of siping.

    Do you have any seat time with the newly engineered tires, enough to give us a performance review?

    Thanks

    I have indeed spent the last hour reading over tire grooving threads.

    I don’t use my tractor on snow much at all, but I find traction to be a weak point on my 1025r. I have realized weight is a big part of this and I have invested in more 42lbs suitcase weights I run either front or rear to help. I also have beat juice filled tires.

    My poor traction is mostly on lawns and when doing dirt work in softer conditions. My tire pressure may be a bit high I am going to lower it to around 10psi, but I was curious if grooving could help as well

    You may see some benefit from grooving on turf or mud but I’m not sure the benefits would outweigh the cost/effort/mess of increased tracking.

    I haven't noticed any difference in traction when off the asphalt or concrete surfaces. I have a gravel floor in the barn, and the driveway, although paved, has many cracks, but I haven't had a problem with discarded/shed mud, etc. from the grooves.
