I have some bit better than half worn 33's (cooper stt's) , looks like im gonna have to run em this year unless I trip on some spare cash. Siping gonna help me gain any extra traction? Used mostly on compact soil, rock. Not a mud freak. I know they will chunk.

siping (not to be confused with grooving) is a great idea for added traction, even new tires. It also allows them to cool faster, lots of rigs do this for cooling purposes as opposed to traction.

siping is when they cut lines into your tred much like normal winter tires have all the lines but in them to separate the solid lug, it lets the tires run cooler and gives you some extra grip cause the lug can now flex
