Paddle Tire Choice Dilemma

2122 Views 16 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Rich S
I got rid of my 20x10x8 8 paddle haulers because they only measured 18" and I didn't like that. I'm going on a dune trip next weekend so I don't have much time to order. If I could wait I would get a 20x10x8 7 paddle bead to bead in a 65 or 66 rollout or a 21x12x8. I went riding last weekend with HQ member MIKE that had this exact setup and I liked it a lot. The only problem with getting the haulers is I would have to wait too long so I wouldn't have the paddles for my trip. I can get the 6 paddle Brats in a comp cut from a local vendor before next weekend, but I'm not sure about their durability. Anyone have any experience with the brats? Are they so thin that I can't ride on they pavement or gravel coming and going to the dunes or hit the occasional root or stump while doing tree shots? I like what I have heard about them performance wise, but I'm not sure about the durability. Anyone want to help me with my decision?

The way I see it I can buy the brats and hope they are durable enough for the local dunes or order the haulers and borrow some tires for this weekend.

Help a brother out :)

I think what else comes into play most of the stuff in the Oregon Dunes is short with no flat starts.

Some are turn your bike around above the water, start on the hillclimb. 20ft to 100ft

Go down into the trees sharp turn and your on the hillclimb. 20ft to 100 ft.

Most of the drag areas are 100 yards or less.4th gear isnt an option.

Is then the 6 paddle brat or Hauler enough.

JSmall sorry for bailing Sunday way too many funny pops Saturday night needed some food.

We have too hookup again.
