Yes mine have got pretty good groves in them .. do you have any problem with the 130 cell not selling if the soybean seed is big .. I was getting vacuum pressure was out of range last year finishing soybeans dealer was telling me my seed disc was getting worn and was leaking vac pressure

I don't know about aftermarket discs but I would recommend having your covers machined down. It made a big difference on my new meters. Local case dealer was impressed They probably would have some good advice on if their is any aftermarket ones.
