A little info on year and model, single step or twin, side by side or newer staggered? I am sure someone here can get you in the ballpark to start.

I had 15 3/8 x 32 Maximus' on my 02 35 with 575s. Top speed was not so good, but drivability was great.

Top speed (cracked 100mph) was best with 34 Bravo's, but those props really suck at everything else.

What were the Max 32's ? Stock or labbed ?
