Default skis for 2007 Trail Touring Deluxe

Hey folks, seems like I'm taking up some space on here. Got this ride as you might see from previous posts and after upgrading my shocks and studding the track have fallen in love with this sled. As for just touring around the backwoods with the Wife it's sweet. Seems as though there's always someone suggesting something different and that leads me to the Ski question. A knowledgeable friend says wider Skis might help with handling, specifically preventing the suck you in problem when encountering deep off the trail snow. I see that some of these newer skis are 9.5 inches wide, seems a bit extreme. Do any of you two up folks have anything to offer for suggestions ? Not looking to scream, just curious as to what might increase stability. Thanks. Sled is 2007 Polaris Trail Touring Deluxe.

old post I know but..

wider skis than 8" are not very common, I think most aftermarket skis are 6-7.5" wide

I'm fond of SLP SLT skis on the edge chassis sleds, they are predictable, easy to steer and no darting. 6.5" wide so around 1" wider than the stock skis I think.

Well, went up to the Syracuse Snowmobile Show & purchased a Sno Cap for my Open Blizzard Trailer and while looking around struck up a conversation with a gentleman at the USI/StudBoy Booth. Pulled the trigger on a pair of SPX Skis and 6" dual wear bars. My journey should now be at an end as far as handling and cooling issues with this Polaris TTD, last year gave me time to move at a very slow pace. I rode not at all, the 2 days I could have ventured out Work got in the way. Praying for White Stuff.
