Help!! Need info!

Hello all.. So I need help w carbide info.. I have a 2001 zl 500 w no studs. My bf (who is out of town currently) told me I need to run 4" carbides.. I have a hook up on 100$ carbides for $50 but they are 8"... Could I run these on my sled or would I have mad steering issues??

8" would be very aggressive and the back end will always be wagging. 6" is pretty aggressive for a sled without studs. Your bf is dead on, 4" is perfect for a stock sled with no studs. I would pass on the 8".
