paddle tires

I purchased a 150 quad for my daughter and took it to oregon dunes,it was a lot of work to ride in the sand with the trail tires on the quad. I spoke with a clerk at Cycle Gear and he informed me before I took the quad out that paddle tires would not work well on this quad because it is a 150 cc. Apparently, you need more horsepower to push it according to him.

Can anybody tell me if this is true or he is full of crap?
if so, do you know what the proper paddle tires or set up would be for this quad? The tire size is 19-7-8 front and rear. It is 2003 kasea 150.

thanks,

Re: paddle tires

I dont think a 150 would have any trouble turning paddle tires that just doent make any sence to me. Just look for the same size in a paddle tire as whats on the quad now. I think he jerking your chain but i cant figure out why someone would turn a person running in the dunes away from paddle tires.

Re: paddle tires

He's right to a point IMO. A paddle tire will bog a motor down due to the fact that it is very aggressive. You may want to look into a tire with a similar design but with a shorter tread , something that will give you enough wheel spin to enable the bikes motor to get up into a stronger power range. Hope this helps you understand a little better.

Re: paddle tires

No problem, you might look at the Realtor All Pro. At least I think thats what its called. You can find them most anyplace. Same design but shorter.
