Tire Shaver;

Do you know of any shops that shave tires?


Or do you know who sells tire shaving equipment?

Re: Tire Shaver;

Doesn't look like any of those Mickeys will corner worth a damn....

Re: Tire Shaver;

WE assume that you're interested in lateral performance versus straight line acceleration. Yeah....those Mickeys probably don't corner very well. Most bigger tire shop should have a truing machine. Truing machines are used to take high spots off of tires that might otherwise not balance properly . I suppose they could be used to shave tires. Would look to shops that do high performance or racing work.

Probably in the major metropolitan areas too!

Just let your fingers do the walking sort of deal..
