would you? The 35's seemed to work better after I grooved them, conformed to the ground surface better and better side hill grip, but then they are 16 wide. Would you groove the 37x13's? Why and why not?

i would, for the same reasons you said the 16"'s worked well. grip and conform to the terrain much better. i'm looking at getting some 37x13 and i plan on grooving them the saame way you grooved your 35's.

Sounds like you answered your own question. You stated the benefits of grooving, and one would think that you would have the same benefits on a more narrow tire too. Maybe not to the same affect, but I would groove them.

I was just curious. I wondered how well you liked that style of grooving since you ran them.

They way I was considering is the one where the big lugs are grooved leangth wise then the small ones just like yours.

how much does the grooving actually help on sidehills? i'm more concerned with mud performance, as the rocks in my area are usually covered in mud.

Why wouldn't you groove I guess would have been a better question to ask. What are the down sides?

No longer DOT but who cares

easier to tear a lug

what else?
