While not true rally tires, I have had grand success by cutting snow tires for Rallycross. I took 14" Cooper brand snowtires, pulled the studs and cut the tread out in a zigzag around the tire. Amazing grip! Nothing could really touch me for accelleration in the mud and dirt last year. Car wasnt running this first rallycross though so I couldnt test them against Bill Price.

This years first rallycross in Oregon (Hillsborro) was won by an incredible margin by Bill Price. He drives an old 100hp Audi with narrow custom cut tires and he was beating EVERYONE by at least 20 seconds per lap. And this was a 1:24 time. Thats huge.

His tires simply cut the mud and dirt and he tracks like he is on rails. No spendy tires for him, just a few (20ish?) sitting in his garage with a tire cutter.
