Just curious about the deep grooves as I drive in some areas. Makes for an uncomfortable ride as my car keeps making small left/right shifts and then I start wondering what it might be doing to my tires.

The center lane of the 215 south of about Sahara, I think, has a wide space on the left side of the lane that grabs tires if you cross it. Luckily the rest of the lane is wide enough that it can be avoided.

I hate the grooved roads so much.

When I moved out to the SoWest, I thought I had tire damage. The roads in the North East are not grooved. Yes, they do pull the car.

what do you mean "grooves"? Parts of S. Eastern has a lot of really bumpy areas. Fortunately, I just got new tires for my car and a wheel alignment done so it doesn't worry me much.

Some of the interstates here on the E. Coast (concrete) highways, have rain grooves, too...but as those stretches of highway break down, they replace them with asphalt....
