here's some info I found:

Who sipes their tires and why?

3… Vehicles with Mud-Terrain and Specialty tires, driven on the highway sipe to gain better traction in wet and icy conditions. Siping can also cause the tire to ride smoother and last longer. Siping the outer lugs can cause chunking, so be careful!.

I siped my BFG M/T tires which had about 25,000 miles of use as well as a pair of Super Swamper TSL/SX tires with about 2000 miles. The improvement on the M/Ts was impressive. With my rear locker, it was almost impossible not to chirp a tire when accelerating around a sharp corner, now, it I have to really try to break it loose. I also tested it in the rain with similar results. On ice, I was able to climb a steep hill covered with glare ice in 2WD with ease. Normally this hill requires 4WD to get up in this condition. While it was possible to spin the tires, if I backed off the throttle, they regained traction and pulled nicely.

i think he's talking about re-tread.. similar to what they do on tractor trailer tires.

in that case, I'm sure you can call procomp or your local tire dealer and ask...
