It depends on the paddles you use. I run 21x12x8 7 paddle extremes with stock gearing and love it. I tried a 13 in the front and didn't like it.

i recommend 21x12x8 also. 6 paddle bead to bead haulers 68ro. For a bolt on bike that will be your best bet. Also run stock gearing. 1 tooth down is to much in my opinion.

I would go with an 8 paddle tire and 10" wide and whatever else size close to stock with smoothies up front close to stock size also.

So...what gearing is the best for the dunes? I have an 08' X model with motoworks slip-on, Velocity filter and pink wire. I would like the feeling of more torque on the bottom end, what would I need to do this? For the most part, I just ride around the dunes and just do a few drag races against the guys in the family..(who are beating me!).
