The 30" sand tires will rub pretty good if you use your suspension. I believe it's the width though and you'll be fine with these being a bit narrower.... I'll find out.

Once here we will be filming a commerical and still photos with the none other "DuneFreq"

Please give a review of the Kahunas. I was interested in them for my RZR but never purchased. Was very happy with the Dirt Commanders too.

Coues-- Where do they rub exactly?-- Ive heard this from multiple people but haven't had an issue as of yet-- Is it when your wheel is fully turned and shocks are fully pressed? I haven't had an issue at all-- I wonder if its because I use Polaris wheels so I have a 1 inch spacer and that saves me--?? LMK-- And those wheels will look insanely awesome!! Cant wait to see them!

Will do. i have ran about every modern tire. only a couple in 30" but ill def let you know how they do.

Where did you find those wheels in 4x110?
these are a RZR 4/156 pattern. Bolted on with an adapter.

Its not because of the polaris wheels. It is because like i mentioned in the suspension post I started we are using hardly ANY of the suspension when driving these. The shocks are so stiff (even with adjustment) you wont rub. Adjust your suspension and you'll rub like crazy. To test this, remove a front spring and cycle the shock to its bump. You'll hit your inner fender 1.5" before bump. losing a bunch of travel.

As I understand, the damn wheels are still held up in customs in the shipping container. I hope you're right. That means I'll be getting mine before the trip this weekend. Got the 30" strippers sitting unmounted outside right now :(

I'm running casinos on the paddles and gunslingers for dirt.

Your 30" front sand tires will rub pretty bad. Need to go with 28"

That's a bummer to hear. The Casino's are delivering today at 1pm. I guess I'll throw the 30" paddles on the Wildcat instead.

With stock suspension and not dropping prrload you might get away without to bad... Buy any Gouts or hardcorner hits and you'll be rubbing like crazy

I understand the desert is tough, I ride dirt bikes.
I don't need dot here. Are you running them due to increased sidewall strength? How does the size make them ride better? The only difference I can think of is the contact patch is bigger and the approach angles are less. By my thinking I can get more ponies to the ground with smaller tires up to the point they break loose. Ground clearance is not an issue with this car.
Just trying to understand, we don't do this with bikes and that's my background.

Thanks

They absolutely do it with bikes. Quads run bigger tires in the desert, race vehicles and trucks do it in the desert.

A larger tire will absorb small to medium size rocks and holes a lot smoother due to side wall. It will skip right over rocks and holes where a little bit smaller tire would fall right in or be squared up more on to.
