Need tires grooved, willing to pay **PICS**

Hey-

I need my tires grooved. Instead of buying a tire groover, I'm willing to pay someone who is willing to groove the tires for me. Based on my research I'm willing to $30-$40 for a set of 4 tires to get grooved.

Here's what I want.

I have these Falken AT tires


I want them to look like this after grooving.

A good tire groover can do each tire in 20 minutes.

Thanks Hiatt. Most tire shops only sipe tires. I need them grooved which is wider.

If i may suggest. Why dont you just go out and by a tire groover? and $40 seems a little cheap for it i remember doing dirt track car tires and they take for ever.

They clean out better but I want to make the shoulder tread deeper.
