Had mine siped the first week I picked it up over a year ago and it made a huge improvement in the rain, ice, and hard packed snow. Got it done at Discount tire. Charged me $40.00 to sipe all 5 tires, and they also refilled all 5 with nitrogen for free.

Has anyone siped the Wrangler tires that come on the X and Sahara? Any advantage/disadvantage to doing so? Will it give those tires a more aggressive look and more bite?
I want a more aggressive look and also better grab off-road. But I'm a cheapskate that doesn't want to replace the tires until I've worn them out. Obviously accelerating the treadwear would not be a big deal to me- the sooner I could buy some other tires
Reviving the old thread but I thought it is appropriate for winter. I am considering having my 35 inch Nitto Trail Grapplers siped for improved traction. I am new to having MTs and I have read that they are bad in the snow/ice. My question is should I have the entire tire siped or just the center? Also I have read conflicting views on if siping will increase or decrease the tread life. I am mostly a DD and wheel about 2-4 times per year.
it has been said siping is "magical" in snow and ice. if i had mud tires on a vehicle i would get them siped for the winter/rain. unless u have a really 'solid/chunky' tread pattern extra siping usually is not needed. even the BFG A/T's have plenty of siping in them for snow and rain.
