    Good question. . I would be leaning towards a new list so the costs get spread out like the original. But I'm open to suggestions from you guys on what you think.

    I have one as well I may be willing to throw in the "pool"! I'd say keep it all in one thread, the tools will be paid off quickly and most of the posts will eventually just passing it on to the next guy.

    So I bought one of these to do the tires on our vehicles! I had BFG KM2's on an old jeep and had them center siped(to prevent chunking on the edges).

    I think we should talk patterns and technique more! Also there's a difference between grooving a tire and siping a tire, so far I've only seen grooved tires. Has anyone siped a tire on their tractor?

    So this is a typical winter tire:

    Click for full res

    This is a new Duratrac (winter/mud hybrid)

    Click for full res

    These are some old Duratracs I was given and I revived. I regrooved the original patterns that were no loger showing and then siped them. These have better traction on ice than the brand new ones!

    Click for full res

    Grooved and siped on the right just siped on the left

    Click for full res

    close up of only siping

    Click for full res

    You can also do this with a sawzall but it eats blades, is a lot more labor and slower lol

    Click for full res

    And won't look as nice...lol

    Click for full res

    I'm still reading through Ken's thread...sorry if it's answered there.

    Yeah I would say one thread with 2 lists might be the way to go. I am sure it will get confusing at times. So I think I will get with jdforever and get his tool going in the mix, if that's alright? thanks

    Hey guys, I've been patiently waiting to see if you want to put my new groover into the mix. If not, I want to list it for sale in the Swap Meet thread. There might be someone that prefers to own their own tool. Just didn't want to step on anyone's toes. Let me know what you're thinking.

    Thanks,

    Tire Groover

    Is this thread dead? I read post 1 and I know I do not have 40 posts yet but I am thinking about more traction. Grooving my R4s is probably something I want to do before winter. The days are getting shorter!

    Good question

    PCABE5 hasn't been around lately, he bought a Blue tractor, and I think the tool got lost along the way anyway.

    Maybe he'll get an email if he's subscribed to this thread.

    I am interested because of the remarkable difference grooving made to my zero turn tires. I used a circular saw to groove each tread block and the traction was significantly improved. I can hold mowing across my ditch and I could not before the mod. I also filled the tires with washer fluid, which is another tip learned from this forum

    If you squint the paint looks green...

    I'll wait to hear if a groove is out there for sale or loan...

    rjm240, did you ever find a grooving tool?

    I'm considering buying one to groove my tires before it gets too cold outside. Anyone out there that wants to loan or sell?

    Or anyone that'd be interested starting this thread up again after I'm done, if I buy one?

    Siping vs Grooving

    I've got R4's I grooved on the rear of my 2520 and it made a significant improvement. I would like to see more discussion on the patterns used and more on siping vs grooving. There may be more I can to improve my tires. Also, I purchased my own tool and would really like to know if I need something to sipe?? My fronts are worn and I haven't grooved them for fear of having to little rubber left. Any word on how little is too little before modifying??
