You can contact Fullerton Sand Tires at (714) 898-2049...no web page.
You can contact Skat Trak at 909.795.2505 or take a look at their page:
http://www.skat-trak.com/paddletire.html

Joe always answers the phone at Fullerton and he also carries Skat Trak and is very knowlegable regarding their products as well; he can provide you some comparison information of the ST products and others he carries. Personally I have never really had any luck talking to the Skat Trak techs...IMO they have horrible customer service skills and are not even that educated regarding their own products...they will certainly not discuss how their products compare to other companies and you can rarely even get an educated recommendation of their products for your application. Over the years I have probably called ST 12-15 times and I can not remember ever getting off the phone with them and feeling satisfied...maybe in all those calls I have just never reached the "right" person. :cry:

Good luck and I think you are on the right track now and if you go with ST or STU I think you will be very happy...

Well I am on with Joe from Fullerton. He is a great guy and spending a lot of time explaining the differences. What a great guy..
Well I have broke down and here is what I went with per your suggestion as well as Joe's..
STU Sand Skate I Comp Cut 21X12X10 mounted on .125 rim
STU Razorbacks 22X8X10 mounted on .125 rim

Now I need to figure out where we are going for Easter.. I think Dumont may be the path of least resistance..


Thanks again OKTRX for all the help and the referral to fullerton!

Best Regards,
Scott

Great Scott! Joe really is a great guy and once you start dealing with folks like him you will have less patience for others!

I think you will be happy with your chioce...I hope someone in your group has a set of stars you can tryout after riding on your setup for a while...just so you too will know you made a great choice. Enjoy and give us a ride report!

If you don't mind me asking, How much did they charge you? If you do mind, then its no big deal I can always call and ask what the going price is.

The rears were $420 and the fronts were $230 if I am not mistaken. That obviously included the rims. Definately more expensive than other options but it took the guess work out and I felt that the decision is one I would not regret. Not to mention that the time he spent on the phone with me and the education I received was worth any extra that I may have paid. It is nice to know the people you are buying from are knowledgable. Granted I did not shop around, hopefully it will be money well spent.

Fuel how did the Gliders perform?

I am not very familiar with the Gliders...I have never personally ran them. I know a few folks running them and they are happy with them...if you remember Kam and the KBR crew they ran Gliders at 4SW.
