ATV Sand Tires from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC

Whether you’re a longtime sand rider or just planning your first dune-shredding trip, there’s nothing quite like ATV paddle tires. They hook up far better in the sand than regular knobbies.

At Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, we’ve assembled a large selection of sand tires from many of the leading names – brands like Douglas, ITP, STI, EFX, Pro Armor and (of course) Skat-Trak. Feel free to browse by tire size or by entering your ATV in the vehicle dropdown menus above. If you need some help on what to look for in a paddle tire, check out our tips below.

Rear Paddle Tires

Practically all rear sand tires incorporate paddles. All paddle tires are designed to bite or scoop the dirt, providing traction in terrain that is characterized as soft and loose. There are two major types of paddle tires: V-shaped and straight.

Straight Paddle Tires

Straight paddles hook up in sand the best. Their design allows them to bite the terrain and propel your quad forward. However, they tend to require a larger turning radius. Sand riders who prefer dragging or hill shooting tend to gravitate toward straight paddle tires as they are better suited for moving straight ahead with the most speed and power.

V-Shaped Paddle Tires

V-shaped tires don’t hook up as well as straight paddles, but they are easier to turn. For this reason, riders who prefer maneuverability over outright speed will often stick with v-shaped tires. Some v-shaped tires may also perform better on trails you might find near the dunes. (Don’t be fooled into thinking that they perform as well or last as long as knobbies, however.)

Number of Paddles

Another thing to consider is how many paddles the tire has. Tires with more paddles will provide more traction. However, in the sand, the most traction isn’t always a good thing as it can cause your machine to bog down and be slower instead of faster. Instead, you should try to find the right level of balance with the level of power output that your quad is capable of.

Aside from your ATV’s power output, the type of sand can also be a determining factor in choosing the number of paddles. Some sand is fine; other sand is coarse. Some places are dry; others are moist. The location you ride at is a factor. If you aren’t sure how many paddles you should go with, check in with local riders from your riding area to see what they’re running.

Front Paddle Tires

Front sand tires generally use a minimalistic tread pattern. Each brand is different, but most tires usually incorporate one or two ribs that extend down the centerline around the tire. These ribs are used to assist with steering. Sometimes the ribs are solid; sometimes they are more like dotted lines. Some front tires are completely bare and don’t utilize ribs at all. However, some front tires use paddles. Running four paddle tires on your machine will improve your traction but make turning more difficult.

    Good for the Price

    I bought these cause they were a bit cheaper then the “14 wide ones. I put these on a stock 2018 xp turbo 4 Seater. They do look a little bit small but I’m not gonna lie, they do hook up pretty well. I figured lighter is better in the sand, another reason I bought them. I am happy with how they performed at the dunes in st. Anthony.
