6" each ski could work, depends on your chasis setup, ie. weight distribution front to rear, stopper strap etc all play apart. You can also check in catalog's like "Dennis Kirk" who sell products. They have studding reccomendations that are valuable guides. But remember they are just that, Guides!
Also remember your type of riding and your physical conditioning play a part as well.

With more carbide your sled will be tougher to steer. My brothers REV has 144 studs and we are running 6" on the outside and inside and it handles great. You dont want something too agressive for regular trail riding.
