So i go out to the sand dunes by my house to try out my new tires at 65 psi and well it did great till i tryed to climb up the back side of a dune and broke through the wet layer and couldnt get back on top of the dirt. I didnt realize how bad it sunk and normally i can rock it back and forth a bit nope. I sank to the frame the fastest i have ever had it happen. I didnt let air out because it was already on the frame.

So after i pulled it out i got it down on flat ground and waited for my buddy to drive my blazer down and i got stuck again, so had to let air out finally and walked it self right out.

That's too bad. Thought you would have done better with them at 65psi. I was at Pismo a while back, with the Dura-Grapplers at 80psi and the 450R in the bed. Had to pull a stupid mini-van driver out, on the entrance ramp, and up hill too. Never got stuck. Took some friends for a tour ride too. Gotta love them highway tires in the sand. 40psi oughta get you anywhere you need to go Bro.

Highway tread is way better in sand than a mud type tire.

The sand was weird man, I did fine everywhere else on the dunes, The spot i got stuck was EXTREMELY soft compared to the rest of the dunes. My buddy came to pic me up in his Taco and he sank alot in the same area. These tires still did great. If i was deseperate i could have done some diggin and drop the psi and got out, but i wanted to try out my winch.
