Sand tires

I'm about to purchase a set of paddles for my EX 400.
I live near Glamis (Heaven on Earth) and would like some advice on the differient types,styles out now, such as the 'V' shaped designs, or traditional 'straight' paddles.
Anyway, if anyone can comment on the advantages,disadvantages on these designs it would be really helpful to me before I shell out the bucks for the tires and wheels,,wheel size?,,,,Funny how many questions keep comeing up just on some sand tires.

Keep roosting.

Re: Sand tires

ITP Sand Stars. V-paddles will give better turning. Straight blades have the tendancy to push straight ahead. [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]

Re: Sand tires

Like Mopar said, the V pattern paddles work much better for carving and roosting tight turns, and the straight paddles like Skat Trak Haulers or their Extreme Haulers hook up much better for straightline acceleration or major hillclimbing action. I like drag racing the hills on my 250R, so if I was going to buy a set of paddle's for a 400ex, I would buy a set of 21 or 22x11x8 8 paddle Haulers. Any more than 8 paddles would most likely be too much traction on a 400ex and slow you down. If you like to carve tight turns and roost your friends more than straightline race, I would go with the ITP Sand Stars. Those are supposed to work nearly as well in a straight line as some of the straight paddle tires do, yet still can carve a tight turn like all the other V paddles. Hope this helps.
