Thanks for your excellent response to all the questions. It definitely answered some questions for me. I didn't know that fact about staggered paddles so that helps too.Sorry for the long response. When I was looking for paddle tires and performance upgrades I couldn’t find detailed information so I want to help out other people In the market.
Thanks for the details about your tires and wheels. I think your info will help many guys here because sometimes the people selling tires and wheels, or other technical products, are not thinking about what is best for your ride, but what they want to sell you.I will try to keep this short. 😊 I am glad that you asked that. When I first bought the paddles and wheels I told the tire company that I needed them for a KRX. They had never heard of the KRX so that should have been my first clue. The tires I have are a 32” x 13” x 15”. When the tires showed up they were are on 7” wide wheels and the tires were crowned, very narrow and the paddles weren’t staggered. I started asking around our dune group and local shops and they said no you need a 10” wide in the rear and 8” wide in the front. So I nicely asked the company if they would dismount the tires and sell me the correct wheels. They got angry and said no it will give u less drag with narrower wheels and that’s all the sell.
To Make a long story short I ended up selling the wheels to a friend and buying the correct width. They were much better with a 10” rear and 8”front and the paddles were more staggered with the tires widening out.
