• Tire & Wheel Package Performance in Sand

November 2019 Forum Retirement
Due to lack of extra personal time (and too much spam), I'm retiring the forum and setting it to a read-only state. No new registrations or posts will be accepted as of 11/09/19. However, all information will stay up and searchable. If you spend a few minutes searching, you'll find the answers you're looking for. We may re-open the forum next spring.

I noticed the new Tire & Wheel Packages that are available in the Online Store and they look great! 8)

One question, which one would perform better in sandy conditions (like we have down here in Florida) on both the front and rear of a buggy, the Trail Hawk or the Mud Trak?

I'm thinking that the Mud Trak tires would be the winner, but also wonder if maybe a combination of the two would work better (i.e., Trail Hawk on the front and Mud Trak on the rear) then all four being the same.

Thank you for the reply.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

You do not need an aggressive tire on sand. You want the largest foot print you can fit on the buggy to keep flotation.
