We have sold quite a few sets of the Skat-Trak paddles, and actually werent a beliver until a stock, STOCK, rhino beat John up Olds with the paddles when he had bighorns. (I got the video to prove it).
7 paddle and 8 paddle rears
They come in 25x12x10 on a douglas blue label wheel, you have to run a 1" spacer up front. <-- the lightest, fastest, best setup in our eyes. the lighter the better!
for those who dont know tires the 25x12x10 breaks down to: 25" tall, 12" wide, on a 10" wheel.
The other set is 25x10x12 with out any wheel. You can mount on any 12" wheel youd like, but we recomment the douglas spun aluminum blue label Outlaw beadlocks (weight issue again, the lighter the better!!)
BOTH SETS RUN SMOOTH BUFFS UP FRONT AND WORK GREAT in 2WD
These are BY FAR THE BEST BEST BEST SETUP for the sand IMHO!
We have 60+ sets on order from Skat-Track, but they are having problems getting the Chin-Seng and Lumber Jack carcasses, they are soo far backed up they cannot give me a date on when I will be getting any.
As far as pricing goes... we dont have any.. but they run:
$575.00 for the 25x10x12 Paddles and Smoothies with NO WHEELS
$695.00 for the 25x12x10 Paddles and Smoothies with Douglas Blue Label Wheels
(you need a 1" wheel spacer for these as well if you dont have one already)
Here are pics of the diff setups:
If you have any paddle tire ???'s please call me or PM me
I tried my paddles this weekend, Skats 25x12x10 with the buffs up front. Holy crap what a difference. Truely there is nothing that you can not do with them. Going up olds is easy as well. It felt better to run in 4 wheel though than 2, but that may just be me.
I would recommend getting a set if you take your rhino to the dunes..
????????? for the people running paddles, are you running 3 to 4 pound of air pressure?
I didnt even check air pressure in my tires, just threw them on the Rhino and went. First try up Olds I couldn't make it. I was like WTF!!! Check the pressure and holy crap!!! 12 pounds!! Went down to 4 and what a huge difference. Up Olds no problem even with a passenger.
So what ply does this make these tires???? Everyone is so concerned with plys, and "oh, your rhino weighs so much your gonna break your tires in half!!!!!!", and I'm like, no you won't, you should run a 2 ply 489 for the floatation, and a super light wheel, and you will float better in the sand! I like the idea of these wheels and tire though! Hey Nick, for some of us do it yourselfers, what quad runs these wheels? so we can try to also find the in buddies garages and stuff like that??? Has anyone tried running like a 23 or 24 " quad paddle or something else on a 10" rim? Sorry, this whole 10" rim thing is foreign to me, and so are quads, but definitely interested in a set, just not wanting to wait for scat trak!!!! Can you jump on these tires and wheels? or so light that you'll bend , pop, and break the setup launching to hard??? Thanks
