Front tires on sand

What kind of front tires do you run on sand and why?

I used stock Redline dirt tires this weekend at Sand Mountain with rear paddles and didn't like my turning response time.

Would it be better to run a front baldy or a Mohawk ridged tire?

Some Mohawks are solid and some have serrations. Which is better?

I did have my tires down to 2 pounds so over inflation was not an issue.

I've never seen that squiggle pattern on the side of the Mohawk before.

What brand are those?

Thanks for the reply!

They are AMS .. My friend got them for me from Tucker Rocky but you might be able to find a local dealer.

Re: Front tires on sand

The guys have tested everything from paddles to on all four tires to mohawks and the fastest best climbing combo there is is the Skat-Trak smoothies and 8 paddle tires on Douglas Red Label rims!

Here's some roost from my RZR out at Glamis with this setup

We run ITP SandStar Tire with the double rib on the front 26x9-12... this is complimented with ITP Sandstar paddle 26x11-12 on the rear... turns great.. have not tested the straight up hill run yet... I have heard that I might lose some of my hill racing speed.. hope to run China Wall at New Years'
