Where Can I Find A Heated Siping Tool?

OK, I've read most of the posts on siping tires, so I'm going to sipe my BFG Mud TA's. I've also checked out the different sites recomended by you guys, and they show a heated siping tool (cuts two sipes at a time), but they don't say where you can get one. Anyone know where I can get one in metro Detroit or on the web? Thanks for any info.

This place has the heated tools used for grooving tires, but have different blades available, they may have something that would work for siping.

Re: Where Can I Find A Heated Siping Tool?

Check out your local TRUCK Tire store . A lot of them have a siping machine that does a professional job . They`ll charge you but they do a nice job .The tire and wheel mount on a machine and it goes across the face back and forth making random slices . We do that at a few of our locations and it works well for ice . I think siping your own would be like pounding sand with your fist[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. Not much fun !
Pat , a re-groover is not what he wants .

I dunno if this is so old I shouldnt be replying to it, but siping was realitively easy for me and actually quite fun, plus you dont really need the heated tool. I used a carpet knife and went at a set of 36's. It should take you about 90 minutes if you go at a steady pace.

Go to Discount Tire Co. they will do it for you probably cheaper than buying the tool.
