Blaine on off-camber.com grooved his STS's up real nice. I will try and find a pic. What size STS did you pick up? What size Baja claws? on the 46s and 54's, all the Canada guys put two parallel (to the lugs) grooves in the each of the lugs. SKOP posted a pic of what I'm talking about in his GORD threadim looking to pick up a set of sts's to give a good grooving to and a set of Baja claws on a buddys truck
so lets see your cut tires
Ive never heard of that technique but I guess if you wanted to try that you could but we find with 2 small grooves atleast per lug seems to grab the snow really well.:smokin:On the claws what about doing a single 1/2" wide groove down the center of each block? Does anyone just sipe the tire and try them?
Well figuring that around 50/50 Tread to Void ratio should work good and the fact that IROK'S work so good. IROK'S have some pretty big voids. I did start with 1/4" and they looked small, they left a lot of tread remaining. I thought they would plug up quicker with wet snow maybe, and mud. I was going to do 1/4" in the center but again even with the 1/2" there is still a lot of tread left. I offset the outsides mainly for the best sidehill. As the material leaves one groove it will be caught by the next offset groove. We will see what happens and hopefully it works cause grooving up $2000 worth of tires is crazy and a lot of work.Any reason you went with such wide grooves instead of narrower ones?
They will be driven to and from the trail. Usually around 75 miles one way but it seems I usually only put on around 2-3k miles a year. It's only 200 horse so it doesn't seem to wear tires down that fast. Im not crazy spinning on rocks or anything either. I also have a set of 37's I run in the summer time usually also.Interested to see how these work. How much pavement will they see?
