the usual groove job on them is you take two then three knobs out in a pattern. You can go to Nacs website or James Lucky I think they show them on there. The groove job in that pic wont be much better than ungrooved tamers.

What does the grooving offer? Is there too much tread on the stock tire?

I have ungrooved turf tamers on my cannondale and I dont get very good traction with them. Does removing knobbies help? What do you use to take them off? Razor blade?

ZThanks for the help, great thread

grooved tamers offer improved traction in looser packde terrain, whereas ungrooved tamers shine n the hard packed stuff. as for grooving them, you can use a razorblade (and most people do) or you can use an actual tire groover. nac's sells them for $30. IMO use a razorblade-its cheaper and just as easy

Save yourself the grooving time and just buy ITP Holeshot MXR's.
