Application
SAND TIRES UNLIMITED focused on a pretty much ignored idea, Front Tires. Front tires for sand vehicles were just an after thought. Sand is to ATV's as air is to a plane and water to a boat. It all works the same. So, create a bigger tire and more footprint and you get more floatation. Sand moves away when you push off it and it moves around when you apply pressure to it. So, it follows that a front sand tire should turn through an unstable medium, like sand, just as rudders do on planes and boats. We gave this tire a biased rudder. The click the picture to see a profile of the tire. This biased rudder sand tire can be run forward or backward for more or less positive steering control. Recommended for 7" wide wheels and ONLY for ATV 4 wheelers.
    Benefits
  • Durable & Rugged 4 ply construction
  • 22" height when mounted on a 7" wide wheel at 5 psi
  • Reversible for more or less positive steering control
  • 10" bead diameter
  • Mounts on 7" wide wheel
  • Tire weight - 6 lbs.

Radical... Webster defines radical as: "Favouring extreme change." In the Sand Skate's case we define RADICAL as: 'favouring extreme changes in direction' Sand Tires Unlimited takes sand tire technology more seriously than any other manufacture we know. Until we produced this tire higher technology in sand tires meant more and bigger paddles. That's OK for cars and 4x4's, not for ATV's. Through extensive testing we found that a non-symmetrical paddle design provides the best turn rates and turn control. Now we manufacture a left side tire and a right side tire. These tires should not be interchanged, keep the right side tire on the right side of the vehicle. Wheel width is very important for optimum performance. Sand Skate is designed for a 10" wide wheel. These tires are great for climbing and playing in the softest sand.
    Benefits
  • Durable & Rugged 4 ply construction
  • 20-1/2" high & 10" wide when mounted on a 10" wide wheel at 5 psi
  • Excellent climbing ability even in the softest sand
  • 8 and 10" bead diameters
  • Can be grooved 4 ways to tailor for 200cc to 500cc and 3 & 4 wheelers
  • Tire weight - (not available) lbs.
