I've got the opportunity to get a used set of Sand Tire Unlimited 31" dia tires with 16 paddles 1 1/4" tall.

My concern is whether that's TOO MANY paddles and it'll load up and dig, plus be harder on the belt/clutches.


who runs paddles and what count/size seems to work best?


TIA.

I'm running the SS360, 15" rims, 32". Will try them in Glamis in a month and provide feedback. The reason I went with these (recommended by shop), they have great grip but don't dig in like the paddles and are good for non-turbo machines. 32" for getting over the crests, and the front tires have the same tread design and allow for use of 4wd when needed if you get bogged. Also, they are super light and a molded radial so they will last a long time.

Got them from Mud Throwers. Excellent deal for tires and rims.

what did you pay for the full set, and what rims did you run? The SS360 really have my attention.

YES please do give a full trip report ride review, and welcome to the forum!

Here is the link to the set; https://www.mudthrowers.com/inc/sdetail/95005/129773. They have a number of rim options available. I went with the System 3 Beadlocks.

Way too much paddle. Heavy too... Your stock Crrnivores aired down will work just as well.

If your serious about duning spend the $$ on a good set of lightweight buffed Skats. 10 paddle would be perfect on a N/A machine.

Quick follow up on the SS360, 15" rims, 32" sand tires. Overall very, very happy with them. Once at speed, they just 'float' and are very quick. The only issue encountered was in VERY light, sugary sand where a paddle could dig and these would spin. This occurred only once at low speed going uphill. They did seem to run best in 4wd, but I could keep up or pass RZRs in my group, and we run fast. Feedback from some of the paddle guys in the group was the same when they drove the KRX. They liked the tires as well.

Here is a sample of the action:
The KRX is the second half of the video. You can see there is no issue getting up to speed.
