Hello all,

Just wanted an opinion from someone who knows about tires.

I'm getting a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers (305/70/17) installed today. Apparently these tires are siped at the factory.

I've heard a lot of good things about siping tires -- basically a horizontal cut across the tread repeated all the way around the tire.

It looks like the siping that comes on the tire is not the same as you would get at a tire shop. The factory siping is just small lightning-bolt shaped directional cuts within each lug on the tire. What I've seen done by machine at tire shops on the other hand is a horizontal cut going across the entire tread.

Anyone have an opinion on whether or not I should have the tires siped by machine in addition to the factory siping on the tire?

Thanks!

Daren
