Further siping has NOTHING to do with hydroplaning. Siping creates more biting edges for traction, tread design determines hydroplaning characteristics. Siping also allows the tread to flex a little more, and work better in the snow.
sipping also generates heat in the tire...as all those little flexing bits tread to rub on one and other creating heat...we used to run sipped tires in the rain and on really cold days to generate the heat to get them to work
