Paddle tires, gearing, Oregon

If your into drifting, trail riding and just general duning a 20x10x10, 9 paddle extreme will work much better than the V paddles.  But if you want to be doing the tree shots by the water, or drag racing I would suggest a 22x11x8, 8 or 9 paddle extreme.  Preferably a bead to bead buff (the tire is ground down to eliminate weight.)  But you're going to be spending some coin on them.  I don't know what your budget is, but if this is a one time dune trip, I would say go with a used set of 20x10x10s. 

For fronts your dirt tires will work. 

Gearing will have to do with what type of riding you'll be doing.   As long as your not running a ton of gear, it'll probably work. 

Awesome advice thanks. 
Curious to why a smaller rim, taller tire and less paddle makes a better tire for hill climbs or tree shots? Does I balloon more, or does the one less paddle make it easier to clear out sand?

yes it balloons. What makes that better for tree shots ? Is it because you can rev out and not change gears? That’s what I’m thinking but I’ve never road sand

Well the wrinkling effect = traction

^^^still one the coolest things I’ve ever seen in slow motion. Opened my eyes to what tires really do. Fak expensive breaks. I spring for good tires on every POS I have.

Larger sized tire will have more surface area, and won't want to dig down too.  Since your a bit heavier than me, you probably could run more paddle and keep the front end down. I'm running a 22x11x8, 9 paddle on my 521, but thats in an attempt to keep the front end down.  

BTW, what size of swing arm are you running?  That'll play a large factor in the sand.

the sedona paddles were junk on a stock cylinder bike with toomeys so they are going to be useless on a serval. I run the padla brats with my 421 serval and love them but i have never ridden skats on this setup to compare. 

Critique these for me. They look like extremes do t they?

Ok I put an add out and I just picked up some extremes for a great price. I’m sure they’re extremes because of the paddle height. They only look about as high as a 20 in tire, on a 8 in Douglas and have 10 paddles. So I think me stock gearing will be perfect. Seem like a good pickup?
