Chevron Shaped Center Blocks

3 of 9
It is common to see the chevron-shaped center blocks on Swampers cut in half, but here each one was made into three equally sized blocks. Notice that the so-called tie bars (at the end of each shoulder lug and between the center blocks) also were removed, further freeing up the tread area. Not extending the cuts in the shoulder lugs all the way out helps keep the lugs from chunking off.
