Will be going to the sand dunes mid summer. Do I need paddle tires on the rear or will I do well to just run in 4wd with stock tires.

I use to do Glamis all the time and i have never owned a set of paddles. Just air your rear tires down and they will do fine.

I just got back from our first trip to sand mountain, little Sahara, Jericho Utah. we went with a new can-am and Suzuki sxs both with turbos and paddle tires, blew us away. However yes I was able to get around and even ride some of the smaller bowls but not any of the big hills. Overall very impressed with performance and had a blast, will be even better with paddle tires. Feels like you are driving in a snowy parking lot, you drift everywhere. So in short yes you will want to upgrade to paddle tires if you plan on driving in sand much. Only time you use 4-wheel drive is when you get stuck.
