My 39" reds are getting pretty low. I want to groove them to get a little more life out of them before I decide to get another set.

What are ur guys opinions on that?
Anyone ever done this to reds before?
Anyone got some pics of their grooved reds?

i assume you mean red label bfgs... if so just run them. as long as they hold air they will work awesome on rock anyway... not so much in loose dirt and stuff though

There's a ton of loose wet dirt and moss up this way.

I have seen pics of peeps grooving thier Red labels to get more life out of them. Have searched for 2 days....no luck. lol

I would like a little more traction in the wet/loose stuff.

Ya don't grove them---its more of the compound than it is the tread.

That's true, but there comes a time when a slick Krawler works on rock, but not on dirt/mud/leaves/stumps when you need some tread depth

Just square up the leading edge a bit and that's about all you can hope for.

they were the tires on my rig , they got the job done surprisingly well

maybe square up a bit off the leading edge but try and take as little as possible.
They did seem to grip well, but they also glazed over with mud real fast in the wet.
