Nothing wrong with cutting brand new tires Couldn't tell you how they worked before grooving them

I've done similar cuts as shown above. Much better traction in sand, snow, dirt, and rocks. I cut the outers a little different, but the insides the same.

The four on my truck are cut like this. They were low tread and this helped a lot

After a trip I used the wider blade and ended up with this.

Yeah I left that piece of tree there for a while. Till someone walked up and grabbed it. I wanted to hit them! Crawl readers rides at r and v I got it. Dang Cherokee was in my way so I moved off trail to let them pass and the spot was a little narrower than I thought! Truck was real clean and straight till I wheeled it this year. Oh well. It was fun

I cut and siped my first set of krawlers. Not sure if I have any pics but the siping helped a lot on the rocks.

Yea, i grooved my new 43's with a 3/8's cutter and they folded WAY better. It was 100% a different tire.
