Where do you ride???

I run Skat Trak Xtremes 7 paddle... The dunes I go to have soft sand, hooks up great! I think 7-8 paddle will do you good but I guess its just preference. :)

think those tires will work just fine...u wont have any traction problems.........ride with them first and then decide........ill be going with a 7 paddle because when i had those they were too much traction for the stock swinger

I noticed today on a buddys quad that his paddles were no completely even with each other.... meaning the paddles from the left side to the right were offset.... make sense??? if so, would that affect ride quality? affect anything???

Usually you try to line the paddles up but with the low tire pressure they end up spinning anyways. Its really not a big deal though. :thumb:

also depends what you want to do go straight, dune or both. I've got the 8 paddle hualers and it's great with my mods hooks up enough for dragging and still duneable.

with that much hp probly can run 22 or 21 x 12 x 8 ....with 9 paddle extremes...they will give you alot of float and top end with the bigger tires...and hook up well..

I dont know about cali.. But at silver lake sand dunes in Michigan I run 22's I also have 21's.. I like the 22's better.. Its easier to do wheelies with the 22's over the 21's.. I'm also a big guy.. O yeah stock swinger.. The +4 is in the trailer :( Havent got the shock redone yet..
