What is the proper tire pressure for driving in sand? I've been driving to the beach in Jacksonville Fl, watch cars get stuck all day. My brother got his truck stuck in the sand. Quite comical. They're from DC. I've had people say anywhere from 5 -20 PSI, which is right?

Scroll all the way down towards the bottom. It really depends on your vehicle weight and tire size. A TJ probably weighs under 4000. Unless of course your sporting a winch, heavy front and rear bumpers and all kinds of body armor. Wink

This outta help you some.

In firmer sand I've always run 10 psi. In the softer dunes I would go as low as 6 psi. That's with 32" and 33" tires. Never popped a bead. That was just putting around, no racing or crazy stuff.
