I am new to messing around with tires. I run a 15x8 wheel and run a mix of Hoosier and American Racer tires 26.5 and 27.5 x 8 (don't know the exact models off the top of my head) I run mostly mediums but have a few softs and hards. Up until now the only thing I do to a tire is put air in it. I don't grind, grove, or sipe anything. Im at the point now with my setup that I can mess with tires rather than fight handling concerns.

So what should I be doing with my tires? Grind them to "freshen them up" and clean off any glazing? Where can I find good info on the best way to grove and sipe?
