    You can purchase an inexpensive grooving iron from any company that deals with dirt track stock cars.

    Grinder, skilsaw, chainsaw. All require a pretty steady hand and make for a good show. Grooving iron always works too. Go try out that new chainsaw you bought last week!!!!!

    I know you are partially kidding, but I might look into the chainsaw method for my tractor tires. Ive never thought of that.

    Thats funny, I just called a speed shop the other day to see if they had any blades for mine. The guy said they were out but he had a blade that goes on a grinder, he said it was made for grooving. I had no clue what he was speaking of until now. If I didn't already have a grooving iron I'd sure try it out.

    about $40.00 each tire.
    basically depends on tire size and how much cutting you want.

    a sharp razor knife works well for cutting the lugs like that, cheap and no smoke.

    LOL

    Actually, yes I was. I had to check the post date and time to be sure though. The old hands weren't typing as fast as the brain was going.

    The outside lugs are pretty easy with a razor knife but I wouldn't wanna try the middle
