What is Tread Doctor?
The Tread Doctor is a knobby cutting tool that uses a specially designed heated carbide cutting blade. You will get new traction and more juice from your old worn tire. As an enhancement, the Tread Doctor Sniper Kit is available for effective grooving.
There are two ways that Tread Doctor can be used with your tires. As a knobby cutting tool, it can be used on worn tires which has round-edged or uneven edged knobs. With the heated carbide blade, thin layers of the knobs can be sliced off making the knobs have edges with 90 degree angles. A controlled scooping motion is advised for this process with gloves worn on. A key thing to consider is, knob flex could happen if the removed knob slices are considerably thicker.
As per the other type of usage. The Tread Doctor Sniper Kit can be used for tire siping. It doesn’t matter whether the tire is old or new, with the Sniper Kit knobs can be sharpened making a custom knobby design which could potentially improve the traction. Recommended for Flat track, Enduro and Motocross.
Hard or intermediate-to-hard terrain tires, especially ones with reinforced knobs with bridges, are the easiest tires to slice or groove. Grooves provide extra edges for acceleration and braking. Instead of shaving the edge of the knob vertically, cut a groove into the contact patch of the center knobs with horizontal grooves and sipe the transitional knobs with 45-degree grooves from corner to corner. Don’t groove the side knobs. For MXA’s tastes, grooving is a better alternative than vertical cutting.
Having a heated carbide cutting blade, Tread Doctor doesn’t cut as much as it melts the rubber. So it is essential to make sure it’s properly heated. The Tread Doctor Sniper kit is held like a knife and with the depth stop resting on top of the knob, you apply pressure as the horseshoe-shaped blade begins to melt the rubber. When pressure is applied against the knob, the hot blade cuts through the knob like a knife cuts through butter.
