Garage
Aren't most paddles 2 ply? Including the Maxxis 4-snow Tires? I'd stick with a 6 ply tire like the Bear claws.

Yeah I think most are. For my ice screw tires I use a tire like razr's that have big beefy lugs. Over the years I have had several different sets and the type of tread doesn't seem to make a difference other than how well they hold the screws. I usually use a half wore out set of tires that I have replaced but still holds air. Then I estimate how thick the tire still is in the lugs, and buy hex head sheet metal screws from the hardware store that are a little shorter. I usually get about two hundred in each rear tire and One hundred in each front. I then use a shot of green slime because there is always some that went thru. Even with that I will usually have some leaks so I may have to add air anytime I ride with them.

X2 on tires with ice studs they work awesome and when on ice they hook up better than on pavement I couldn't believe how well hey work just done ride pavement with studs they wear out real fast I studded my stock tires they are a bit soft but they worked for me the more studs u put in they better they seam to stay in the tire I put two in every other lug and one in the others

I was just going to do it for fun it was light fluffy snow so I was just out drifting and doing donuts. I still have the stock tires and am planning on getting new ones so I'll just stud the oem ones

I put paddles on a honda recon 1 time in the snow, think they were itp sandstars and they pulled great in the snow. Was about 8-10 inches of powder but a big difference from the stock recon tires anyway

Yea probably better off with stock overall because sand tires are the worst for hard packed riding
