A little fun in the sand at Juniper Dunes in Wa.  8) Had to baby it a bit, was getting alot of wheel hop in the sand. Probably due to tire pressure. What is the groups general consensus regarding the correct tire pressure for sand dunes? Also doesn't appear that my picture posted

Probably 10-12lbs in the sand. I liked 9 but popped a bead in the sand with 9 so.. actually with my Reapers I run 10 on everything. If you go a couple to maybe 4-clicks to the "Slow" on your rebound, that will help with wheel hop.

Good call, I will give that a shot. I am at about 15psi. Need to dial it back a bit. Thanks

tire pressure depends A LOT on tire size, side wall stiffness and sand texture.  I have run down to 6 psi on sand but i was also running bead locks so i didn't have to really worry about rolling a tire off the bead.  The stiffer the sidewall the more air you can let out and not worry about rolling the bead off also.  And if your on hard packed/wet sand you can run the pressure slightly higher because you generally dont need quite as much of a footprint to get traction.  I have a dune trip coming up in 1 1/2 months (going up to Silver Lake Dunes in Michigan again).  And I ordered another set of rear wheels and paddle tires.  If you going to be in sand quite a bit the paddles sure do help a BUNCH over normal dirt tires.  I plan to start out my pressure at 10-8 PSI and I will see what the sand conditions dictate the pressure needs to be.  Also I will be on 14" wheels this year where as in the past I have been on 12" wheels so that will make a difference with pressures also.
I can imagine a world completely at peace.  A world where there are no weapons, no war, and no violence at all.  And I can imagine us taking over that world because they would never expect it.
