Just thought I would share.
You get used to the grooves. They chew up your tires faster, but help with traction in the rain.
Avoid tires with tread patterns that look like parallel lines - they tend to catch the grooves a lot more. Tires with grooves that go across the tire don't catch the grooves as much.
