Default Ever seen these paddles?

I'm thinking of getting a set of these in 26" for the winter V setup with the skis.

I don't list all the mods, but unless I supercharge the V Force, I've run out of things to do to it or bolt on to it.

Wouldn't a pair of very aggressive 25" or 26" tires do the same thing for you for a LOT less money? Those look cool but they won't give you a longer footprint or anything. I even bet some 26x10-12 ITP Dune Star or 25x10-12 or 27x12-12 AMS Aerospeed tires might work similar to those and would probably handle higher speeds better. Those look VERY heavy.

Or something like this?

Or even these.

New Rear Sand Tires for Dunebuggies and Sandrails:eBay Motors (item 170403291880 end time Dec-05-09 09:59:26 PST)

They are knockoffs of Blasters and I believe are about 30 lbs each but they are very cheap.

Well I'm not 1000 bucks sure that they will be better.

I have tried so far...22" V-grabbers with screw in ice racing studs, 22" cheng shins of some variety with screw in ice racing studs, 22" Sand Sharks, 4 snows, and the current winner...22" Realtors with snowmachine studs with backers.

I acquired a brand new set of 22" Realtors this year and plan to triple the amount of studs. I forsee a problem with the meat of the tire tearing out when a stud really catches on something. I ran with 18 studs per tire last year, only one per space between the paddles. I could at any time, on any surface break the back tires free. It's a blast to ride and out on the ice track I could drift it like crazy.

My plan this year is to go two per space, and one alternating outsides. The ideal tire option I feel would be a 25" Realtor with two studs per paddle. Keep in mind that this isn't for an ice racing setup, this is strictly for my own amusement out on the lake where my ice fishing shack is. I want to have enough traction to pull wheelies.


I don't think that the weight will be an issue. My V has a 700UTK Fundy, Muzzy, VDI, EHS, VFJ clutch, 4" swingarm extension, etc so spinning that extra weight, especially in the snow, will not even be noticeable.


Thanks for the opinoins and comments, it keeps me thinking.

I think you spinning issues may have had a lot to do with the fact that you are using 22" tires. I bet a taller tire would help a lot with that. There were some 25x12-9 (or 25x13-9) Realtors on wheels that were on craigslist up in your area just a little while back but I cna't seem to find them anymore. Maybe they sold. The guy was only asking $75 for the pair.

If you were on any hard-packed snow or ice, I bet what you have already run would be better than the ETV Design stuff... unless you could stud those as well.
