I had ITP Sand Stars for a long time before I bought some haulers, kinda close I guess. The v paddles LOVE to slide, almost too much for me, but they were a blast as far as just goofing around in the flat stuff. I ride mostly cruising through the dunes and only occasionally drag racing, but I like the haulers a lot better and will not be going back.

Edges are pretty good tires. They work great for what they are built for. I really like Sand Stars w/ 8in rims. The 10" rims suck balls.

I run them in a 20-10-8 on my ltr and they arnt a bad tire, just don't expect to win any drag races with it. I like them becouse they are a very predictable tire, especially for jumping. My gliders like to kick my a little sideways at the lip sometimes but the edge shoots me streight almost every time. Hope this helps

I like personally think that the edge is more of a jumping, duning tire. It is easier to turn/slide with a v paddle than a streight paddle. A streight paddle is better for hill shooting and dragging. I run 14 paddle gliders on my Honda and I love them. I run them on the ltr sometimes and I can tell it runs a lot quicker up the hill with them, but it's really squirlie on the jumps. What kind of riding do you plan on doing?

You've already got arguably the best all round duning tire and size.. I'd stick with that..
