off-road tire modification

Recommended Posts

Anyone catch the article in the latest dirtrider, grooving the rear tire? Basically cutting the knobs the long way, to give more feel. Anyone try this, thinking of trying it myself. Says it can extend the life of the tire as well.

does anyone have a link to the article online? It sounds like you are talking about sipping the tire. Off roaders do it all the time.
