You are right about the importance of sidewall when deflating the tires for sand driving, it makes alot of difference.
But then I suggest you go for 70s or 75s with 2" lift on your OEM 17" rims. and the sidewall for a 70 tire on 17" rim is same as 70 tire on 16" rim.
I'm running 265/65/17 (wide tread Matercraft tires), I drive very smoothly on very soft sand dunes. and I used to drive on my original tires on sand for more than a year too.
