Best Paddle Tire

I currently have worn out GBC sand sharks (20 X 11.00 X 8) and they worked pretty good. Im thinking of haulers or sand stars next, what would be the pros and cons of both? And what size would be best for my bike? I ran 14/38 gearing last time i went and that was too tall im thinking of going to a 13 or 12, suggestions on that? Do a little bit of dragging but the strip isnt that long where i ride (Little Sahara, OK) with the current setup i dont go into fifth, when i did it just bogged down bad. Typically run a 50/50 60/40 mix of av gas and 91 octane. Full list of mods is
Wiseco 12 to 1, stock bore
HRC Cam
Full Curtis Sparks Exhaust
K&N Without Lid
Jetting:
Pilot 55
Main 175
Mid 75

Imo you will benefit a lot from a 13t. Some people say run a 12t but it will eat up your chain slider faster. May I ask why you are mixing your fuel with a 12:1?

Just as a little boost i guess, i dont even know if it does anything though. When im just driving around i just use 91, the last dune trip i mixed av into it, the next time i think im just going to run race gas since its out of the pump at waynoka. My chain slider is basically non existent anyway lol ill just go with 13t.

I was worried about durability of triple buff too because I ride in areas with some sticks and rocks on the trails once in a while so I decided to go with a bead to bead buff instead, not quite as light but I have better peace of mind.

I've had my paddles for about 5 years and they have held up good. I've driven them on the asphalt coming in and out of camp at Coos Bay, Or. and have had to drive through some rocky areas at Sand Mountain,NV. The 21x12x8 will be better for climbing hills, but can be a little more challenging side hilling. I have always been a fan of the 7 paddles whether you go with the 21x12x8 or 20x10x8 haulers.

im ordering from rockymountain so 7 paddle isnt an option in those sizes, only 8 paddle. im just afraid that the 21s will be too much tire for my power

i know 7 paddle isn't an option online but you may have to call in and order. I personally think the 8 paddle are too much tire for a lightly moded 450 (Haulers, sand stars, etc).
