So heres my idea, I want to double the edges on my bias baja claws. I'm goign to do this by grooving them so that the alternating grooves become non stop grooves. Anyone know why this would be a bad thing? I dont think I would be taking off too much rubber. I doubt it would effect the paddle effect that works so well in the snow. So does anyone in Boulder have a groover I could borrow?

I wouldnt groove claws I used to have a set of 35x13.50 bias ply's, It seems to me they would chunk way to easy just my opinion, if they are old tires and are worn out I guess give it a try.. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

I guess you might be right. But the smallest tread block will be the same size as uncut ones. Because of this I dont think it would be much worse. If you look at the tread 2 grooves alternate: -_-_-, I want to do this: ====. This would give 5 total continuous grooves and hopefully a better grip to keep them from sliding sidways.

I helped a friend groov up hes claws and he was very happy with how much better they wrapped around rocks. I didn't notice any chuncking but I am sure they will some.

Did he do the same thing I'm thinking of? They all ready chunk alot more than a allterrain. I'm not too worried about that. I only drive it about 2 miles a week, more if I go wheelin of course.
