Tire Siping in Houston???

Does anybody know of a tire shop in Houston that actually still does in-house siping? I've called several folks without any luck.

Any leads would be appreciated...

I called a few different Discount locations in Houston. Apparently they used to offer the service. But have not for several years now. Disappointing...

Is there a place that retreads tires there. I know when I lived in ca, that's where I would go. Worth a try

Get a tire groover/siping tool and do it yourself. I did. It's easy to do. A few videos on You tube. On E-Bay you can get a tool for just under $65. It brings about 5-8 blades but, they are all one size. The blades are meant for siping but, if you turn the blade upside down you can groove with it too. Go to www.idealheatedknives.com and they have everything you need. If you are going to groove you will need a different head than what comes standard. You will need to get either a #1 or #2 head plus the #1 or #2 blades. Some folks don't condone this practice but, my tires are wearing fine and didn't have to re-balance. I used the smallest blades for a .060 groove.
