    Hi...I got it!!!!. Do I sound XXXcited...DUH......A new 2021 4Runner....Last year my wife and I retired, and we moved to Del...I wanted to start fishing last year, but all the beach permits were gone(17,000) by mid June...also I needed to get a real 4X4 and let lose the 2011 Kia Sorento....which was great on everything but sand....which was bad....I stopped counting how many times I got stuck on IBSP in NJ...I got tired of digging out....So here I am...Just got the Del 2 year permit....I need a little advise....The new tires and rims look cool(dating myself here), I never had such aggressive tires on the beach...How low can I go in airing down? 15-18 psi...is where I want to be....but I might have to go to 10-12 psi in super soft sand....any advise would be well appreciated. Do I need to get less aggressive tire.

    John

    Welcome to the forum John, i would say 18-20 psi. You do not want to break a bead so be mindful how you maneuver.

    I’d do 25psi, and maybe drop down to 20psi. Popping a bead would make it a bad beach day. If you have shot stock Bridgestone tires, airing down lower than 20psi won’t do much for you.

    Welcome and congrats on the new truck!
    I’m also new to beach driving and had driven a few times here in Long Island for surf fishing. Fairly soft sand, I ran between 18-22 psi on 4H with stock Bridgestone dueler tires. No issues at all and like it a lot. Wish I had gone more often.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! You sound like you're on the money with tire pressure, those aggressive treads do ok in the sand, just don't spin or you'll have to use 'Crawl Control'. Actually some of the most effective tires I saw on beach sand were smooth with tread lines all the way around, this seemed to work well. Good luck fishin'!
