Thread: Sandy Roads

    Yeah you don't need new tires. And you certainly don't want mud tires as some have suggested. I was wondering about, HOW MUCH sand are you really driving in and how often? If it is just patchy areas, your basic AT tire is your best bet. And you already have the best tire available the BFG TA/KO which is about the best AT tire out there for sand.

    Like I suggested, I wouldn't even bother airing down. You adjust your tire pressure to meet the off road conditions. Driving down a dirt road you don't need to air down. You HAVE to air down for east coast beaches but not for patchy sand. For basic dirt roads highway tire pressure is fine. You get stuck in sand then air down.
    Good Luck.

I like my BFG ATs and i thought it wouldn't make much sense to buy different tires for just part of the land when the rest of roads are mostly dirt. I'll try airing down the next time i go to that spot.

    Thanks for the tips fly. I too am a big fan of the BFGs.

    Good Luck with the hunting down there in bama.
    I started hunting about 10 years ago. A lot of duckhunting. I got an antelope with the bow out in WY and a cow ELK out in CO with the 30-06. I have been trying for a turkey but no luck yet.
    I have a new flyfishing/hunting rig on order from GM.
    I can't wait for it to get here.
