Question Sand roads

2007 QD II stock size tires. kind of a mud /snow /pavement tire. I live in Oregon. Along the coast. My wife is disabled, but loves to go to see the waves, beach, etc. There are some sand covered hard roads, through the dunes, and through the foliage, out to the beach. I am not wishing to go DUNE RUNNING but just go to the water. I understand that I will have to deflate my tires from 36 PSI down.



I presume the TPS will kick on for the low pressure. I am ok with that. I have one of those 12VDC air compressors, that shuts off at the set pressure. So, my question is, how far do I dare lower the pressure. I know underinflated tires will build up heat. I am thinking 20PSI to be the LOWEST to go. Now, those portable air storage cylinders. That hold about 110PSI. About a 5-11 gallon tank. Do those work, worth a darn? Thank you in advance.

I have never aired down my tires when going on the beach and I have been in some soft sand. Have never used 4Lo on the beach either. Got stuck once but got out with a few tries. QDII is awesome!

Less aggressive tires are better on the beach. They won't dig in. I go to the OBX for aweek every year I air down to 20 psi and keep it there until I am ready to leave. Most trips are under 10 miles. I have never had to air down on a Florida beach.
