Yep I think I was the 1st one to groove an SX this way and now their on Whitewaters ride. I'm kinda dreading doing that much grooving to my new 38x14.50's

Hey Toyzilla - you got TONS of tread left on those tires if you groove out the whole wear bar and center sections down to the tread base... We did that to a friend's half worn 38.5x16 TSL's and they worked like NEW <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Exactly! That is why I was asking if Jimmy still had the groover!! Right now they are slicks. I have a hard time going up gravel roads. It sucks!

More than noise, I'm wondering if anyone has noticed increased wear. Since I sold the tow rig, I need to drive mine more on the street now. Seems to me the extra voids would shorten the life on pavement. <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">
