Today while at my local tire shop, the guy who approached me commented on my jeep, and then asked if I'd ever tried getting my tires siped. After telling him I would think about it, I went to lunch and looked on the forums about it, considering everyone was happy they had done it, I decided I would try it. I got them to do it for 36 buck! and wow! What a difference! It rides more cushioned, has more control, much smoother and after driving my jeep in upwards of 70 degree weather for about an hour, they were still cool to the touch! Can't wait to see how they perform in the snow and rain!
