If you want to drive on the beach, you need the right tire so you don’t end up stuck in the sand.
One of the best things about living in Delaware is the ability to drive on the beach. Sand driving is one of the reasons you got your truck and had it lifted. But merely buying a truck and lifting it doesn’t keep you from getting stuck in the sand and turning a fun time into a frustrating experience.
Proper driving style helps, 4wheelonline.com says. That means keeping a continuous forward motion and staying at a steady pace.
But driving style alone won’t keep you from getting stuck.
To avoid sinking into the sand, you also need the proper equipment. In this case, that means the right tires for the task. That means sand tires with large sidewalls and the right type of tread.
“Sand tires are designed to help a truck or SUV move across the top of sandy terrain,” 4wheelonline.com explains. “The likelihood of sinking is eliminated by two things: having a wider tire and tire deflation. Actually, the two go hand in hand.
“When choosing a sand tire, a driver should look for a tire with a large side wall. This is important because when the driver lowers the air pressure of the tire, the sidewalls will expand downwards and give more surface area that is in contact with the ground. This will help the vehicle ‘float’ on the sand.”
As in all types of tires for all jobs, tread also counts.
Look for a tread that’s close together. A wider tread helps a tire dig into the ground, 4wheelsonline.com says. That’s the last thing you want when driving over a sand dune.
Of course, that leaves you with the chore of choosing the right tire from multiple manufacturers. If you’re trying to decide which is best for you, your best bet is to consult with a trusted industry expert.
