    I know the threads are on this site somewhere, I couldn't find them. I want to cut X grooves in regular skid treads. Should I take the tires off the machine first?

    We cut our tire with a tire groover and did them on the machine. We used a 1/4" blade and it made a big difference in traction. I will try to get a pic of the tire tomorrow for you to get an idea of the pattern we have ran for a year and a half.
