yes sir, used a '‘grooving iron’‘ specially made for just this purpose. all my tires get a ’‘once over ’' when the tread gets to a certain point…some tires are really easy to make better, others, well, not much can be done for them. its the same machine they use on commercial truck tires and on monster truck tires ( to make those tractor tires lighter)
when i am done with a set of tires, i am done with them. i get my monies worth !!! considering the tires pictured, i paid $12 each , brand new at wal-mart, a few years ago ;-) ;-) .. i should have bought more than 12 of them…. :laugh:

yesterday…
fixed a vibrating heater motor. junk in blower wheel-cleaned blower wheel, lubed motor. installed cross-over tube better than the factory did, it had a large cold air leak before the heater core…
installed ¾ rad block, for winter highway driving.
replaced pass side door lamp switch.
re-worked the pass side seat, now it slides ahead when flipped forward for pass rear seat entry. adjusted cable and lubed rails.
vacuumed out car
adjusted washer sprayer nozzles
made sure the block heater / intake heater is working
spare tire is good, winter emergency road kit is good. …
