I don't know of any specific sand paddle tyres for the Clod rims, but if you are prepared to play around with hubs it should be possibly to fit something along those lines from other manufacturers.

There are people running dual tire configurations - see main forum page as an example

Some non paddle tyres like the mud slingers..

would no doubt produce good rooster tails of sand.

I dare say Rumble tyres would also give good results..

Clodbuster stock tires have really good floatation and are good on sand, the treads sling it well too.
While not the same kind of sand your asking about, here is the super stocker running at the local sand pit:

Integy as well as other companies make adapters, but you will need to measure for clearance.

Proline will work with these adapters.

Unless you have alot of power in a clod I don't think you will see much advantage over stock tires, which will have more floatation over the prolines.

I've spent a few packs on the lake Michigan Beach just north of silver Lake and was impressed with stock tires (well mine are back cut) and really saw no need for paddles as I was never stuck.

Just be a little careful running a Clod on the sand. The rear motor cops a whole heap of sand kicked up from the front tyre, which in my case resulted in a fried motor.
