Default Tire grooving, $10 per tire

I will groove your tires for $10 each up to 35" tires..... $15 each for any tire up to 44"...

Here are the boggers I recently did.

Time to groove these tires were about 1 hour per tire...

I'm in Dearborn Heights. I would rather do it here since it takes so long... but if you pay for gas and aren't too far away, I could travel. my cell is 313-595-5613

That's a good deal! I paid more than that for the tool and I'm not looking for to the time spent doing it.

15 bucks an "hour" in cash isn't bad. I make more than that but if I could get that sittin at home w/ the radio on drinkin beers "workin" on someone's tires I would be OK.

But if I do side work for someone I expect about 20-40 bucks per actual hour spent working.

Allows the tire to flex better, clean better, not slip on sidehills, just better overall offroad traction, etc....

Keep in mind the price also includes me buying the blades (about $10 for a set of tires)

So really you are doing it for $7.50 an hour labor? Holy shit, I think the only people that work for cheaper are Stan's mexicans.

Now does this $7.50 also include the design time? Or is that extra?

Bones, can I just drop off my boggers one day when I'm in the area, or do you need a time/date?
