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 easyOriginally posted by LapTraffic@Aug 15 2003, 06:59 PM
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
yep-passed the dale as soon as they went under.anyway, yea i got the z. its a nice bike. handles great, power is good. basically, all i could ask for from a trail quad. but, i am looking to upgrade to a yfz sometime before next summer.Originally posted by LapTraffic@Aug 15 2003, 08:45 PM

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