    Any ATV tire that you can get to fit.
    Duro was my choice and it works well, the TW just needs another 10 horses to make the bike a hill climbing beast.

    If you go fast enough the TW will ride on top of the sand -- like a boat planing. And don't let any sand get on your chain and sprockets...............
