    Ok, well, Stock UTVs in the Sand... lightest tire and wheel combo make a huge difference I guess is what I should have said.

    Weight always matters and the Skats are the Best. Skat-Trak has been making Sand Tires work since 1967. lol
    The Yamaha guys just love the Skats as it is really noticeable on that car.

    Yes. Agreed Warlock.. with the way the motor needs to rev to make power the Skats work great.

    Well I did like them. With that said, I did not get to push the car super hard. I spent most of my time driving my 2 seat turbo. I feel like I need more time on them to have a better opinion. They look great thats for sure!

    Best place to get the same roll out, or actually a little more, is Extreme in the Phoenix area. Definitely stay away from Rocky Mountain.

    Tim at Xtreme Tire has a bunch of fronts coming in at over 96" to 100" plus Roll out. And his tires get the extra Buffing time so they are the lightest you will find.

    Joey, you still running these Skats? Are they keepers or are you going a different direction this season?

    I noticed in some of the Camp RZR pics on FB that he had buffed Mongrels on the front and not the full buffs that he had when he started this thread.

    I was wondering if the 32s rubbed too bad?

    No they didn't rub bad at all, they only touched at full bump when the wheels were at full lock. I actually just moved those to another vehicle with LT (Cinderella). The Mongrels I had buffed are also 32 but because they are more narrow they didn't touch fender at all.

    I loved the skats I have on every machine. I am a fan and a believer. I plan to do a full report with what each set up is but I can tell you I think the best performing are the Sandcraft RCR proprietary Skat's I have on the Dynamix. Look good, work good and are light!! But the fronts I had made out of the Mongrels for the Fatrod look the best and definitely corner the best. The Fatrod still needs more rear paddle but the size and shape of those rears looked the best out of all of them. Putting the other 32s didn't look right. All of these paddles I have are 32s.

    Nothing, sandcraft has Titan put there name on a implement tire for farm equipment. The tires actually stiff and heavy. I also don't think they have that much Roll out so they are a short tire. If you have a X3 RS you need a 100" Roll out roughly so the suspension works and your not stuffing the nose in the sand. I Duned for a 1/2 day on my 30" Bighorns aired down to 10 psi and yeah they work OK but if your group of cars all have the Xtreme Skats they roll through the drop offs and G outs with out hitting the belly pan or stuffing the nose. I would have to check up on a lot of stuff so I didn't stuff it every time and then I would have to Keep it pinned till the last second to try and catch back up and grab the brakes again and again and again and that gets old. So if I drove at a speed that was comfortable for the 30" bighorns they would just keep pulling away and before ya know it there a few blocks ahead and in the Dunes you can lose them if ya can't see which way they went. A few of my friends just bought some new Max X3 cars and since Xtreme is back ordered on the 32s they are calling me and begging me to help them out on getting Skats from Tim before Thanksgiving cause they know how big of a deal it is to have that bigger tire.
