I'm going to try running 24-11-12 & 24-9-12 for the sand. Didnt like the ITP paddles slowed down with them. My 26' dirt tamers aired down do ok. The smaller tires shouldnt work the engine as hard and pull the hills better. Last year I used my junk skock tires did pretty good. My paddles slowed me down going to sell them. Any idles on it before I buy a set.
