paddle tires on a teryx

Hey. I took my teryx to the sand this weekend to check it out. It was a lot of fun and did pretty well. What I was wondering is if anyone runs paddle tires on their teryx. If so, what are the best paddles to go with? Mine is all stock, but it will have a cdi pretty soon. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Seems like the majority of people run the haulers in back and smoothies up front.

I need to start looking into doing something on mine as well, problem is I have 14" wheels.

I haven't taken ours to the sand yet but I was thinking about a set of paddles. People will run smoothies in the front, even though its 4x4? I understand not running paddles up front but at least some knobbies for a little traction. The only problem I have is I can barely fit in my toy hauler as it is, I don't know what to do if I add a set of paddles and make it sit even higher.

Actually the smoothies up front do work. Awesome in 2WD and pull better than knobbies all around in 4WD.

Here is what I run on my RZR:



Tires & wheels came from Fullerton Sand Sports.

We are working on a set of 26" Lightweight paddles for 14" rims, we are a few weeks out still but we are working on them.

I have an extra pair of smoothies that are new and never mounted.
They fit the stock size wheels. $150+shipping

I will say most people who have been doing this say paddles up front slow ya down and smoothies give ya some sliding. I like the lumberjacks and smoothies on mine. I went 7 paddles...if ya got the horsepower 8 might work..Do not get itp paddles you will be sorry. I walked all over a friend who had itp's....

Testing

Tim Kelly has done some testing and he claims the 26x12x12 7 paddle extremes work best. I ran them last weekend the they did work very well. Hopefully by the first week in November I will have the set of 26x12x12 10 paddle glidders I ordered so I can test them and give you guys some feed back.

Unleashed,
I am interested to see how the gliders compare to the extremes. Let us know what you find.
