Which wheels for paddle tires

I'm real close to getting a set of 25x10x12 7-paddle rears with smooth buff fronts, but I can't make up my mind on wheels. I show Douglas makes both black and red label spun aluminum wheels, which are both really light. How many people use a regular ITP type of wheel for their paddles? I'm leaning toward the SS108. Would this wheel be too heavy? Will the advantages of the paddle tires be lost with the extra weight of the wheels?

AZ Wheels for paddle

the paddle smoothie set will work on 7 inch wide cast type wheels it will just work better on an 8 inch wide spunn aluminum wheel due to weight and the extra inch of width makes a pretty big difference also. Pricing is about the same and in some cases a little cheaper for the spum aluminum wheels and for duning the are plenty strong enough!

I would go with the blue douglas spun aluminum 10" wheels several vendors are selling with the paddles and buffs included.

I'm using a set of ITP bead locks I got from Nick At UTV Crap. Call him and he will hook you up with what ya need. I'm running the smoothies up front with the Lumber Jacks in the back. The ITP SS look good but weigh alot more. (Tires and rims are twice what my paddle tires and rims weigh) I use the SS's and TerraCross wheel/tires for trails. Good luck. Here's what I have.

greg pretty much nailed it.

the ITP cast series as well as the DWT litecast wheels are a great wheel to use for your paddles, but the 8" in width is the best setup for the paddle tire, as well as the weight you save.

We have mounted uncountable numbers of paddles on standard ITP and DWT wheels as well and OMF and ITP beadlocks, the locks are nice because you can run the tire at a really low PSI and have no worries of rolling a bead and be in the middle of th dunes with a ratchet strap and an air tank tryin to pop the bead back on.

the ss108 weight in some where around 8-9lbs each if i remember correctly, so not the heaviest wheel, but also not the lightest.

give us a shout on wednesday of next week and we can go over pricing on wheels, weights, etc when im at the shop.

I have a spread sheet that shows EVERY wheel weve ever stocked's weight and dimension.

the shop number is 623.934.3070 ask for nick or tom

The narrow width of 7" wide cast aluminum wheels will hurt performance in sand as much as the extra weight. I use the 12x10 Douglas red label wheels, and they keep the paddle tires nice and wide for extra flotation.

Where are the black label 12X8 wheels available? Seems like everyone has the red label not the blacks...
