Thanks for the comments. Just to clarify, I was not proposing to remove any tread. I was thinking of just slitting across the tread blocks to the depth of the tread, so that at the beginning and end of contact the slit would open reducing the amount of flexing in the tread block. I would not expect this to have much impact on handling, but would expect the tread to deflect more due to braking and acceleration and therefore wear more.
