I made it about 50 seconds in and could not take anymore. The best and easiest is a Van Alstine cutter,
http://www.vanalstinemfg.com/product...er/groover.htm

Then comes the cheap $60.00 Ideal cutter, http://www.idealtiregroover.com/prod...e-Groover.html

Next and last on the list is the good ole Sawzall, if you do not own or have access to any of these three, wait untill you do before attempting to cut tires.

This is by far the fastest I've seen.

You can buy these things at home depot. For around 100$

Possible but the friction from the blade on the rubber will cause enough heat on its own to create the smoke. Soapy water would actually help a little.
