I picked up a 500 lb tire to start my strongman training. My deadlift is 455 right now so I was surprised that I could only lift it 2-3 times most days. I have a real issue with finding any handholds because the treads are too smooth.
Yesterday I found one side that has some chunks broken off and was able to flip 7 times pretty quickly just because I was able to finally grip it. Does anyone have any experience with grinding in some texture/something else to deal with a tire like this or should I just keep sucking it up?
