i bought the sport tires of america (stu)14.50`s #2 paddle ( very wide and doesnt bend) for this new motor and trans on mine. i can say , with out a doubt, they def are a more aggressive tire with a lot more flotation the the 1100 or 1300`s.  i have never ran extreme brand but 14.50 is 14.50 in width.  glad to hear all is going well. so are you going to buy the lot next to fast and jerry now? lol  are hauling fuel onto the dunes with you then?

I think this is the same name that was on these (sand tires of America)?  Where did you get them and how tall is the #2 paddle?  Is #1 or #2 taller? 
I carried an extra 2 gallons one day.  We ran from 8:00 till 4:30.  I didn't use the 2 gallons, but the fuel gauge showed empty.  Fast put in 5 extra gallons along the way.  It died and wouldn't start when he loaded it on the trailer.


i can measure tonight but mine are #2 and those are taller paddles then #1

Fullerton is a great place to get paddles and such.

mckenzies was the cheapest i found.... i know the top of the paddle is 7/16" wide and base is much wider about 1.25" but i think the paddle is 1.25" tall or just under.
