Hey there!

What exactly is it, to sipe a tire?

I live in the Tahoe area of California where we get LOTS of snow, 
although it is fairly wet compared to the Rockies... Last season my 
Hakka 10's with studs (on all four syncro-driven wheels) were AWESOME. 
Almost too good, they gave me more confidence that was prudent. 

Never heard of the siping, though.
