it really depends on what you are doing. crawling and trail running yes it does, but if you are bashing or rompin around monster truck style then they wouldnt. when at a fast pace with the tires "pointed" forward the chevrons grab and push the loose dirt out from under the tire so it gets ahold of the hard packed stuff.

It tends to pull the tires up on top of snow better in the winter.
