Not bad for a Jeep! Looks real nice , you may want to groove your Bogger's they kinda suck at the slick rock stuff . If you groove them they do a lot better . Other than that it looks like it's gonna rock. This is how I did mine . It helped quite a bit.

I was think about doing this. What do you think??

Tire Siping

Discount Tire/America’s Tire offers the revolutionary tire “Siping” procedure.
Here's how siping works:
Siping Detail

Saf-Tee® siping cuts slits, called sipes, at 90° angles across the tread, providing thousands of gripping edges for better traction and stopping power. Wear-robbing heat and hydroplaning are also minimized.
Check out the information below to find out how you can improve your traction in poor weather driving environments.
Improved Braking

Research has shown that the most effective braking power occurs immediately prior to losing traction. Siping extends the window allowed for maximum braking power by giving the existing tread a helping hand. In the examples below notice how the siped tire has dozens more gripping edges. These micro edges reduce the distance needed for braking on wet and icy roads.
Improved Braking Graphic
Better Traction

The tread surface on your tire is made up of many smaller surfaces know as “Tread Blocks”. The reason for so many surfaces is especially important when it comes to icy or wet road conditions. The Tread Blocks get their gripping power not from their many smooth surfaces but from the more numerous sharp surrounding edges. Siping improves the job started by your tire manufacturer by providing more of these gripping edges.
Better Traction Graphic
Smoother Ride

New asphalt is relatively smooth but time and wear exaggerates the coarse texture of the road's surface causing your tires to absorb most of the impact. Siping gives your tires a Micro-Flexibility reducing the wear on your tires' carcass and sidewalls. This effect not only increases tire life but will result in a smoother ride.

Grove them. Siping is good for the rain an road manners. Siping is just do it doesn't hydro plain so bad. Grooving is for the trails and rock. The boggers have no lateral support.

I agree! They did great after I grooved them . Just get a Ideal groover and go to town.

no shit.

A siped bogger would be better than a not siped bogger, a siped and grovved bogger would seem to work very well IMO.

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

Hancho that makes sense too....


All siping bullshit aside I like your jeep, it looks good, clean, a little bright, good lift/tire balance, I like it.

When I worked in a tire shop we sold it on the theory that siping created more surface area to disapate heat and increasing the life of the tire.

I had also seen agressive tires that had been siped come back with big chunks missing.
