Which Skat Trak 26-12-12 tire?

Ok I have about 80 HP at the motor and a Dalton clutch kit. Which Skat Trak 26-12-12 tire will be best? 9 paddle extreme, 9 paddle hauler or 8 paddle ripper? Looking for good all around duning and drag racing on loose sand. What width rim would be best? I was thinking 10" douglas red label, but can't find any.

If you run a 10" wheel I think the biggest tire skattrack offers is a 24", but its real wide. Its a perfect tire for a rhino, but with your power a 26" running 8 extremes would be nice.

Just remember more paddle gets you moving faster out of the hole, but creates more drag and brings down top speed.

That makes since. I had read that the guys that have run 8" wide rims run faster speeds. So more paddles or larger paddles will help out of the hole but hurt top speed. With the Rippers being 1 1/8" tall it would probable hurt more than help with speed. Rippers cost the most, then extremes then haulers, I think the 8 or 9 paddle extremes will be my choice. I'm going by to get a quote at a local shop. Any vendors carrying 26x12x12 8 or 9 paddle extremes? Found them online for about $398 for a pair of 9 paddle extremes.
