Figured I'd post a review of my experience with Fullerton Sand Sports. I had been looking for some new paddle tires for a while and decided to get serious last week. Got a big dune trip coming up here next week and wanted the tires before then. One of the guys over at ATVRiders recommend getting in contact with Dave over at Fullerton Sand. After a couple of emails, he helped me decided on some Skat~Trak Extremes (21x12x8 6 paddle). Figured I'd still shop around and try to find the best deal. I found myself back talking with Dave since they ended up having the best price and were also one of only two places that had the size I wanted in stock. Takes 3-4 weeks to get them directly from Skat~Trak. Anyways, I got the tires mounted on some DWT Blue Labels for $296 shipped ($276 for the tires and wheels, $20 for shipping). I placed the order over the phone on a Thursday afternoon, the tires were sitting on my doorstep at 10AM the next day. Granted, I am less than 300 miles from them, it was still pretty damn impressive. I would (and will) definitely do business with them again.

After the trip I'll post up my thoughts on the tires themselves. So far I'm extremely impressed, tire and wheel weigh in at 13lbs mounted.

Yeah, they should be a huge improvement from my Sand Geckos. I can't wait to hit the sand with them.

You got a picture of them on your XX? Don't think I've ever seen one with Skat~Traks.

We're getting ready to head out to Rasor Dunes for four days on the 16th for my birthday. Should have a bunch of pictures and videos of the trip. Gonna be the first trip to the dunes with the new paddles, carb and intake.

Had an absolute blast at the dunes. These tires are just ridiculous. I figured they'd be a lot better than my Geckos, but man, it's almost indescribable how good they are. Not only was I flying up the hills I was struggling on before, but I was doing it with the front wheels off the ground. These things have an insane amount of hook-up. I am now a true believer in Skat~Trak, I'll never buy another paddle. They may be expensive, but they are well worth every penny.

Yeah, the pipe doesn't bother me too much. Usually I'll have riding socks or some boots on, though. And the dune we were hitting wasn't exactly the best for jumping since it was 20' - 25' tall. We still managed to get some decent air off it.

Here are some more pictures:

Haha, yeah, I know. I gotta say, for being 6'5" 280lbs, it still surprises me what it can do with me on it.

Fullertons are good guys to deal with i am a skat trak dealer as well for the east coast guys the west coast guys will probably save some money by the time you figure shipping going through fullertons. I have some certain tires i have found to work extremely well and is something i will be stocking/selling here shortly. Extremes are great but for normal riding these will work much better. but they are defiently more than $300

I don't think I'll be buying new paddles for a long time.
