I can not understand why people think that slicing a tires tread elements up can improve the performance or life of a tire. I also have never met some hig school kid that can design a tire better than dozens of engineers with millions of dollars worth of computers and even more $$$$ in research and developement.

Thanks. Email me your mailing address, I'd like to drop this regional (very well respected, too, I might add!) tire and wheel store's brochure. I'm a 37 year old professional, college degree, and the brochure made "sense" to me.

I've actually already seen it and the test dated that it quotes ..... and it just doesn't wash .... it makes sense in theory at very, very low speeds (like the testing on luggage carrrying vehicles at Chicago's O'hare airport).

but, my address is:
