Narrow rib front tyres are the worst when rding on grooves, as the ribs follow the grooves.

Nowadays, this problem is quite mild compared with how I recall when I first started riding 40 years ago.

Back in thse days many roads had permanent grooves (anyone remember the California rain grooves on freeways?) and it was a key factor in many road riders choosing Dunlop k81 tyres in the '70s - they were one of the few front tyres that were a non-rib (actually they were a universal tyre that could be fitted both front and rear) and didn't follow the grooves.
