stock 1.25" track? studs?

depends how aggressive you want the steering to be..?

I'd go for 4 or 6" bergstroms , Bergstrom Skegs | Carbides, wear bars, trail grabbers, ski savers

Stock skis?
Shaper bars will help it turn.Its kind of like adding a deeper keel to your ski.

Yes...assuming they are stock...Side Hiller skis. Haven't road machine yet. Has 4" on it now but work out. Looking for a starting point or just go with what was on there?

I would run 8" shapers on stock skis but I like to turn into the corners pretty hard.
I run 6 to 8" on triple threat usi skis on all my trail sleds....no studs

The shaper bars will give you more turning abilty without going the next step to aftermarket skis.
