Well were going to build a few experimental tires to Run on the Max I got against our other Max since we have a Baseline on them already. The 28s(roll out 85 to 88) 12" with 7 paddle pull my 26x12 x12 up hill in dry sand at Glamis by 1 to 2 bikes . But on flat out drags I pull his in the Mid and pull him on top end runs. Dry Sand the last 2 weekends. Now that will certainly change up once the dunes get some moisture in the sand. Multi Paddles will suffer. I have another set being made that will be grooved in the Middle so they Bite hard on the Start and Progressively change up as the tire grows and we ride in the center of the Tire. Were trying to make a Variable Pitch Tire so we will have good cornering and Launch and as the tire grows it will run on the Center of the tire with the least amount of Paddle in the sand so we will have a good top end Speed.

we think they might be a little Squirly on the Big End. LOL. Sand Is always Loose. We will see.
I have a pic of a few we just finished up. View attachment 6000
Did these work good?

The STM didn't make a difference over stock and the only difference is the tire width?

The wrong tires will slow you down and negate any gains the stm have over stock and a properly tuned stm is much faster than the stock clutch in the sand especially running up the hills. I bet Benzo was smiling when he beat Mega up the hill...lol

I was kinda hoping he was gonna fly by me to justify buying a full stm down the road, lol

I guess if I spend $2000 then tires shouldn't make that much of a difference. I saw the video of STM vs stock and there was major separation between each. I didn't think tires made that much of a difference.

in the sand it makes a shit ton of difference. I am ordering a set of 7 paddle skats, to see the differences.
