    Awesome
    I was just extremely skeptical about buying these paddles because I had previously bout some sti San wedges and I hated them so much but I didn’t have money for skats or stu’s. I bout these hoping they would be okay but they were better than okay they worked amazing out in glamis. I absolutely recommend these. I have them on a 2016 Polaris rzr xp4 1000 turbo

    Great Paddle
    I bought these paddle tires for a YXZ1000R and they have been very good. The only thing i would say is the 14 paddle is just a bit to much for a stock YXZ1000R. However if you want nothing but traction and/or you have a turbo, these are great.

    Good tire, but not foe me.
    Very nice tire with good build quality. Bad part is my 2018 X3 Max Turbo R blows the tire away. Other thing is the tire does measure 30 inches as implied in the tire size. Should be okay for the 120 hp machines. These are going up for sale. My loss.

    Floats on the Sand well, but spins out to much on hill climbs. Lands well on jumps.

    Sand tires


    -m-2016 CAN-AM Maverick 1000 X ds Turbo-- these tires are good in the sand. I would recommend them. They are good for the price. My machine went threw the sand perfect. Make sure u put the ribs on the front tires on the outside. And make sure u put the rear ones on right too. Make sure the rear tires have the cups face forward.

    are these tires light weight ?
    DENNIS B on Sep 11, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The weight of these tires are about 21.5 pounds.
    do they come as a pair or single?
    Alejandro R on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: These are not sold as a pair.
    What PSI do I run these at?
    Ryan R on Nov 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Depends on your rim, beadlock wheels 2.5-4 psi, standard rim 7 inches wide 5-6 psi, the wider the rim is the more pressure is required to keep the tire on the bead with a standard rim.
    2014 maverick max non turbo. do i have enough hp for a 28x13x14 on the 14 paddle
    ??
    Chance C on Mar 26, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I think they work great I bought them for my 2014 RZR XP 1000 I bought a smaller size from my stock 29 inch tires so it wouldn't kill my horse power, So you shouldn't have any problem as long as your ride is around 1000 CC's. They also hook up good and I can go anywhere in Glamis ! !
    What rim do i run with this tire? Can I run a Douglas rim?
    A shopper on Aug 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: You can run these on any 14 inch wheel. I personally prefer to run them on a 9 or 10 inch wide rim. STI HD6 14x9 is a great affordable option, but a douglas 14x9 or 10 would work just the same.
    I just bought a set of these sand paddles and I am wondering if I need to balance them. Any thoughts?
    A shopper on Jul 12, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I have worked in the tire industry for decades. I see little benefit in balancing paddle tires- although it will not hurt anything at all- except maybe loosing a weight flying off. They are run at low pressure- constantly changing shape over uneven terrain. I would not personally balance paddle tires.
    would the 30inch or 28 be good for the maveick x3 turbo?
    CORY S on May 16, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Cory
    I’m running 30 inch on my rzr 1000 turbo. I have had plenty of power to climb any dune that I’ve wanted to try,without making any changes. I’m running stock. The tires work great and after one season not much wear,but that all depends on how you drive and sand conditions of course. I’m getting a second pair for my wife’s 800. Like you I’m wondering what size to get, most likely 26”
    Has anyone used these on an XP 1000 4 seater? Non turbo.
    Nick T on Dec 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They worked well on my 2016 Can am turbo, I think they would work good on a non turbo machine because I had a good amount of wheel spin on my turbo Maverick.
    Would these tires support the weight and power of a sand car? It’s maybe 2500 LBS and around 115 HP
    A shopper on Jul 13, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I think they would work great for your application the can am guys run these they are pushing 2,000 pounds dry with no issues add fuel passengers and cargo your over 2500 with no problems. Hope that helps
    How many ply are the STI Sand Drifter 32" tires? I see different answer depending on what websites I search.
    Todd O on Dec 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: These tires are a 6 ply.
    The weight was stated previously as "The weight of these tires are about 21.5 pounds." However, I am guessing that is the weight of the smaller 28", Question: Accurate Weight of the 30x13x14??? I would guess it is closer to 30 lbs???
    Todd C on Dec 3, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: 29.0 per sti’s website
    Can anyone confirm tire height? Does the 28/30 include the height of the paddle or is it the smooth bit plus paddles? Seems like every other tire on here is measured different.
    Ryan K on Sep 18, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Well I had to go measure. My 28 inch on 7 inch wheels with 8 psi measur 27.5 inches without the paddles.
