I've aquired a set of 38.5 bogger's with little tread left, I've heard rumors of swampers being able to be re-grooved and haven't found any one who knows for sure.
Can any one clear this up 4 me?

Can it be done? Yes, I've seen it done.
Is it actually legal? I don't know.
Will a cop know the dif anyway? Doubt it.

Try a tre shop that specializes in tractor trailer rigs.

I have heard of it being done as well.
It just seems there isn't alot of meat
there to cut. I know semi tire's are stamped
if they have been or can be cut just wondering ifthere is something to look
for on these boots.

my 38.5 Super Swamper SX's say "regroovable"on the sidewall. You'll find this on most heavy truck tires too.

I was quoted around $40 a tire from Tires Plus in Mission for regrooving my Swampers, he said you usually only get a little over an eighth inch of tread back though.

Parnelli_001, and lonewolf if you bring the tires to me I can do them, but aren't you guys a litle far? Can give aprox 1/8" of tread, depends on tire though.

We can do anything you want, but it might not be legal if we go crazy.
