I am going to buy a set a paddles and two extra rims in the near future. I have a 94 ranger running 33 right now 35 when I need new tires. I was wondering what size paddles I should get and what kind of rims (offset?). Also where is the best place to get them at besides the classified? Kartek / Meckenzies? I know from experience that some times it is a pain buying parts for a truck at a "buggy place". They just dont know what part is right on a truck sometimes. Any advice would be great.

For size I would say go with something smaller like a 31. Your not concerned with ground clearnce in the dunes and the smaller size will help keep the RPM's up. Im not sure what motor your running but paddles can kill your power. I have seen a few guys run them backwards to get them to spin a bit more on lower HP motors.

If you get cupped paddles you will eat up your clutch fast. There are another type I forgot the name but they look like a grid and seem to work on low hp cars. Grond clearence is important too becaseu if you dont get going then you will be sitting on the pumpkin real fast...trust me I know.

Sand Tires Unlimited Mini Desert Tracks in the 14.50 width seem to be popular. Not to aggressive. Id like a set myself.

You can get em at ORW, Baja Concepts, VW Paradise, B and R Buggies in my neck of the woods.

If you have to use less aggressive paddles, run them backwards etc.... Im wondering how much of an improvement they will end up being over an aired down A/T tire?

A buddy of mine has a 99 4.0 5 speed ranger and run's the 15.5 paddle traks with excelent results. 2wd up old's is pretty impresive. He put on a nitrous kit to help with the luanch. I think he might also be running 4.88's, other than that the drive train is stock.

Hey - I've got a pair of the Sand Tires Unlimited DesertTraks, the ones Kritter was talking about, I'd sell them fairly cheap, I no longer need them.
