I still dont understand the concept of removing rubber.

Just buy a better tire.

I used a skill saw. It's not as wide of a groove, but at least it's fast, and you can set the depth.

Those work great but if the grinder get loose on ya its way more dangerous then a grinder disk

Skill saw is so simple, and almost safe.

i thought about a skill saw. but i kinda figured it would bite or somethign

Bite, as in cut, yes. Much lower smoke level.

if wear bars were that important, all tires would have them.
some tires don't have them
some tires have lots of them
some tires have only a few.
I just woudn't go PAST the bottom of the wear bars.

ive carved padle tires out of radial honda tires
worked great at stawberry isl but wouldnt drive them on the street
if its of road only muddin or crawlin carve away
if your driving it to trail or fsr dont cut it very deep

offroadordrift
12-07-2010, 12:05 AM
didnt cut it deep. just down to the rest of the tire. got another half inch of life

Ahahaha I used a grinder on a pair of tires once! Took for-fucking-EVER!!! I smelt like I'd been standing in the middle of a tire fire, and there was rubber mulch everywhere. Would not do again. Good thread, even though it's ancient
