Thinking about cutting the Buckshots...

Idk what do ya think? Will this greatly help there performance at least enough to justify buying a tire groover? I really don't even know how they perform offroad yet. I was just sitting there admiring them and think how more forward bitting tread would be nice. If i got a groover could i cut the tread a good 10/32's deeper into tire?

You can take a reciprocating saw and grind the teeth off the blade and it works like a powered knife, works GREAT for cutting tire lugs.

those tires Blow in the snow, so you might wanna do something with them. I'd cut them, then have them siped. It'll keep you outta the ditch this winter.

wouldnt he be removing part of the tread to give it more of a forward aggressive pattern rather than reverse? So in theory wouldnt he lose some performance in reverse?

maybe sell or trade them for tires that don't suck? it'll save you a lot of work.

Those just look like a knobby Wrangler RT/S. LOL
