Stock tires in the sand.

you can get around ok I have ran mine in the sand. I always start in 2nd, unless its really steep or I want to go slow.I ran mine at about 1 1/2 lbs to 2 lbs of air. the only time I got stuck was doing stupid stuff. oh ya dont race any one unless they have stock tires also cuse if you race some one with paddles you will most likely get your ass handed to you.

I raced a raptor 700 with sand tires, and I was on the stock ones, and only lost cause I hit the rev limitier in 2nd gear.

I live and ride here in Oregon and I have had no trouble in the sand dunes with stock tires.

Let the air down to about 3 or 4 lbs and go have fun.
