ok im getting the haulers soon but might hold off on the front paddles/smooth. Now does having a smooth double rib fronts like the itp sand stars make a huge difference in speed climbing hills on sand?

you may have a hard time turning cuz some paddles force your atv to go strait so try to get ones that will force it to turn like ones with center rib

Don't forget it hard to turn when the front end is off the ground :grin_nod: :grin_nod: On my banshee I have buffs in front and straight hauls i the rear. I have no problems turning when not on the gas. When I hit it it just want to go straight!! :thumbsup:

So im planning on buying the ITP sand stars.... do i need to buy fron tires for the sand ? ? or can i just use the factory ones.... since i only go about twice or three time a year to the dunes.....
i started another thread asking what size of sand stars to go with....

You can run the stock fronts with not worries. If you ride more sand then 3-4 times a year then get the fronts when you get the extra cash. I run Haulers in the rear and mowhawks in the front. :thumbsup:

Front sand tires are a bit lighter and that weight savings may make you a tad faster but its not really that big of difference....

I do prefer a ribbed front tire over smooth and stockers. The stock tires throw allot of sand at you while riding but if you are only duning a few times a year, dont worry about it.
