Anyone have a tire groover?

As the title states anyone have a tire groover I can use for a day or so?
Need to do this to my rear tire.

How the tire comes with a solid rubber band down the center.

41a6084e00d183ef9abe9014d30c2a37

And I want to break up that center band for some bite.

Thanks in advance

If no one has one, you can take those tires to a semi truck tire shop and have it done for a couple bucks.

I use to regroove semi truck tires back in the days when I was a teenager for my neighbors dad. Almost every semi truck tire shop will have a few of these laying around.

A good hot groover in the right hands, can groove both in under 10 minutes.

There is a reason that some big bike tire sizes like that have a solid center. Big bikes have too much hp & torque and connecting tread blocks holds it all together. Heideanu K60's used to be separated but some back then had delamination and cracking issues. Solution was connecting blocks and problem went away.

It'd be one long night to get a decent groove with a dremel. The most efficient way to get grooves in tires would be by a hot groover... and not the type that is wasted before 10pm at the rave party. Although, if there was a shot of penicillin waiting by your bedside in the morning, that wouldn't be a bad idea either

The problem with using a Dremel is that it's a one time shot at the tire.

If you use a real tire groover and you make a mistake you can always go back and fix it with a tire ungroover.

There's no second chance in regrooving a tire. Either you go too deep and eat belt, or you have funky looking grooves.

I did not know that. I though they did it to get extra miles out of tire. Too bad they don't make a 180 size rear in the Mitas E07. Those don't have a solid center.
