I BOUGHT SAND SKATE II'S FOR MY PREDATOR YESTERDAY AND I WAS WONDERING WHAT IS THE IDEAL SIZE? I GOT 20X11X10 (I THINK). AND I ORDERED .160 RIMS, I DONT JUMP MUCH JUST LIKE TO RIDE HILLS. WILL THOSE RIMS HOLD OUT?

Thats exactly what I run on my 400ex they are a little big for it, but I love my paddles, I loved them so much I bought another set for the Predator.Mine are Turbo paddles on .160 Douglas rim.On sand, really unless your catchin BIG air and lading hard or side n a sand rock mixture you should be fine with a .160 IMO a .190 is just a waste and added weight you wont be needing on sand....

Hey Bassman Sand Skate IIs are okay for all round riding but if you want to drag race it at all, get some Haulers. I have run both the and the Haulers are hands down a better paddle for getting the power to the sand. The V style paddles just can't give you the traction necessary for good launches. Most races are won or lost in the first 60-80 feet. Just my thoughts.

Haulers are a good tire also.. I ordered my paddle(the turbo paddles) and Im on back order for a week . . Straight paddles are a great tire for climbing and drag racing like Pismo said... I like the V paddle for just play time. The Extreme HAuler is also a good paddle . The only difference between the Extreme and the reg. hauler is the Extreme has a btter cup, more durable for running on sand mixtures. The size and weight of them are the same..

Like quadjunkies stated above, the new extreme paddles are a much better choice than the old style haulers, they have the same size paddles, only they are a tad thicker, much better holeshot because they do not flex under power like the haulers can and do. 20x10x10 9 paddle extremes and a 38 tooth rear sprocket are an excellent choice for a stock predator, with a pipe and some airbox mods, the stock gearing works great.

Im currently in between sand skate II's, king turbo paddles, geckos, and STU paddle brats. They paddle brat is a pimpin tire but for the cost and all I would probably go with the king turbo paddles cuz they are cheaper than **** and seem to hold up well.

I have Turbos and they rock!!! I am Dying to try me a set of the Padla Brat for my 400ex now after seeing how much they weigh and the tire size.. How much do they cost?.. I have had Trubos on both my 300ex and my 400ex and they are a great tire ,very durable and good price.. My probelm is, they are on back order now,so I went with a Maxxis Rooster instead, then I went to my local HOnda dealer for some stuff and they had them in stock...Go figure huh.....lol.... TINA :)
