Just about any of the Skat Trak paddles have a bigger scoop than an STU. The Digger is the smallest. Hooker is the next size up.

I have casing sizes from 31" on up and can find smaller ones when needed.

So we can custom make just about anything to meet your needs.

what would be an equivalent size as far as rollout. maybe 31" or 32" diameter ? also is the bite stronger and will more bite hurt top end?

I think 20.00 have a decent size rollout. From their website it says they are a 33" tall tire on an 18" wide wheel. So, a 32 or 33 would be similar. And yes, more bite usually helps your 60' but reduces your mph. You have to decide which one you'd benefit from the most.

I think there is more roll out on a scoop type tire then a paddle. At least that is what I found. I spent a lot of time measuring different tires and there is a big difference in same size casing from different manufacturers. Also how the STU's were cut, and how many scoops were on the casings. I would think a 33" casing scoop tire would have a lot more roll out then a 20.00 STU. Borrowing a set or just measuring someone else's would be the best way if you could.
someone go back and get a shit load of dimes

Well, if you're talking about a tire for the same jeep in your gearing post, you probably don't need a 33" tire. At least a normal 33x16 or something like that. I do have some 33x10.5x16 casings that might work.


I have a lot of these 31.25x12.25 M/T drag radial casings. That sounds like it would work perfect for your vehicle. Maybe put 10 Hookers on it.

Here's a set I did for a dune Jeep in Oregon front and rear. I think it has 8 on the front and 12 on the rear. I can't remember exactly.

also hoping to solve a problem i have been having on hill.no problem on the 1st stage but not moving at all or bouncing and not making over on the 2nd stage.thinking a scoop style paddle may take care of both problems? also how wide of wheel are those 31's mounted on and are they 15's or 16's.

Have you consulted Reuther Racing about this problem , I heard they spend many hours in their race shop discussing and solving such problems. I heard they are the best , when it comes to manually shifted jeeps and smokin the hill. :shock:
