They make disks to put on 6 inch angle grinders specifically for this that work well.  We cut tires for our Farmall H years ago this way.

They stock them here.  The gold colored ones are similar to what we used.

Midwest also sells a disc to sharpen the front of the lugs

Other than that it takes practice to learn how to do it properly

I've seen guys use a hot knife/regroover to angle the bars back. Works a lot faster than a grinder. Then use a disk to tru them up

I've often wondered if this could be done.  I remember in high school we had a foam cutting tool at the stage to make scenery with.  Looked like a coping saw with a battery pack and a thin wire instead of the saw blade.  Would love to try this on some rice patty tires on my 560 Farmall to clean them up.  Where does one get one of these tools?

Instead of cutting your tires buy duro 23x10.5x12 they are a tad shorter that 23 but they are really 11in wide and they work like a cut tire the guys i pull with always have some in there trailer
