regrooving tires

Has anyone ever heard of regrooving tires? I have a couple mudgrappler 35's that are pretty low and a buddy of mine said you could take a regroover and get another 10-20k miles out of them. My main question is , is it safe for the road?

never heard of it for passenger tires, i know semi tires say they are regroovable on the side walls,

with that said it probably could be done, but the risk of a blow out would probally be increased and i would be watching them every day until i saw the metal mesh(can"t go any further)

i dont think its worth it/ honestly that safe so i DON'T recommended it,i think it will significantly weaken the tire

Tires are the #1 safety item on any vehicle. Don't mess with them. Replace them.

Regrooved/retreaded 18 wheelers are way too dangerous on the road. How they get away with turning the highways into minefields...
