There is a Sand Tire Question in every category on this forum ahha, and they are all 20 posts long, maybe we should make a new category for sand tires! :D

Slief, I do not know what kind of $$ you want to spend so I will run a few scenarios for you.
Let's work with a few assumptions...
Lighter is always better and usually costs more.
a 10" diameter rim will slide better then an 8" rim but not be as fast for the same reason.
More paddles dune better but will also be slower then less paddles.
All suggestions below are on Douglas .125 rims...
Prices include rims and are guesstimates but should be pretty close.
I use Joe at Fullerton for all my tire purchases and several of the below tires you can only get from him...great guy and I have been buying tires from him since 1988.
Drag combo:
STU Paddla Brats 21X12X8 6 paddle $470
Skat Trak Mowhawks 21X7X10 $170
STU Razorbacks 22X8X10 $220
Best turning/duning tire:
STU Sand Skate I Comp Cut 21X12X10 $430
STU Razorbacks 22X8X10 $220
Do all everywhere combo:
Tebo cut 22X14X10 $475
Razorbac 22X8X10 $220
The Tebos do not accelerate as fast as the brats and do not turn as good as the skates...right in the middle.
Now, for money savings and some performance loss insert the same size hauler in a 7 paddle in place of the brats, or an Extreme in a 6 paddle...insert the Edge in an 8 paddle in place of the skates...there is no other option for the Tebo. Another possible money savings on the front insert the AMS Diamondtracks $170 in the same size as the razors...good tires and work very well but are heavier.
Good Luck!!![/b]

Just depends on you and your riding style bro...

If you feel too high geared then sure, drop your gearing a bit...you can either add teeth to the rear or subtract from the front...lowering the front 1 tooth is a little less then adding 3 to the back.

Reverse if you feel to low geared...

I have sand stars on the front and rear of my quad. But I was riding a LTR with Kenda Dune Runners fronts. What a difference! I could turn his bike sharper much easier.

alot is also can be your suspension setup on the turning and carving ability on the dunes.

i opted for some 22's up front to get the front end up .. also stock fronts are like bricks pushing through the sand because the are a hard rubber.

they will work .. i ran it like that for awhile .. but you will feel slow ..
