Well after our vacation at the beach this year, my inspiration to finsh my Baja exploded. (good thing) Very Happy This after watching a friend of a relative come close to getting his Ford pick-em-up stuck in the sand while we were at the beach. No! No! No! No!!!!
Fortunately he finally listened to us about dropping his tire pressure down, and once that was done, he crawled out. work out

Any-hoo. I started thinking about what tires I should go after for my Baja. Confused
I'll be towing this thing 300+ miles to our destination so I guess I need to keep them some what highway safe, at least I don't want them to wear down too much just from that activity.

So what do all of you beach/sand experts say? Wink What size/type etc.....

Well, nothing beats paddles for sand, but if you're going to tow it on its wheels, I guess that's not an option. I'd maybe tow it on highway tires and swap to paddles when you get there maybe. On the hard wet sand, it won't matter much, but if you're looking to cruise in the soft stuff and have some fun there, there's nothing that'll do that like a paddle tire...

paddles are the best. but if you don't have room to take them. you can get desert explorers they will be good for that. but only if the car is a IRS trans.the swing trans will be hard on the tred. keep tow speed down. call chirco.com 1-800-955-9795. ask them.

Problem with that is we'll have to ride a few miles or more on asphalt to get to the sand. I ain't gonna change over at that point.
I would love to do the paddles but it's not feasable.

Thanks for the response any way.


Any one else????
