    I'd say it's just a design. If that were a process, it would likely cost too much to save a knobby.

    It's a recap or retread with a zipper...unzip the worn out one and zip on a new one!

    That's the deal.

    I'd say mud, though.

    If it were for sand, the knobs would be taller.
    You don't need to earn my respect.
    I give it freely.
    Whether or not you keep it is entirely up to you.

    That would make sense with that odd sidewall too - I've seen mud tires for off-roading have stuff like that to promote wheel cleaning instead of having mud cake itself on
