Does anyone have anything to add to the correct psi topic? Is 20 psi good for the 20" wheels? Should we stay a tad over 20, under 20, right at 20? Under 1 week till obx!!!

Re: OBX/Sand/etc... ???

Me again.
Just to give you an idea. I have done about 4 continuous hours of driving in very soft sand. Temp in the low 40's C / 110 F. No problems, no damage.
Also many hours in same conditions with 18 and also 20 PSI. Again no problems except for the one time a tire came off, but it happens when you push it a bit hard in a turn. Sometimes you get into a situation where you donít really have a choice.
Small difference between 18 and 20 and there was nowhere in Dubai sand dunes I could not get with 20 instead of 18. MAYBE just need a little more momentum, but nothing worthwhile.
Start at 20 and see how it goes. BTW I have the 20" Kumho's on
Whatever you do, just dont leave it in Auto. Obviously use SAND mode!!

Re: OBX/Sand/etc... ???

I have found the 12V compressors to be very slow in refilling the tires. There is usually a service station near the OBX beach access points, though in some cases you have to pay for air. Four other things I usually carry are a tow strap, pin for the hitch, a special valve that screws on the tire valve and let's air out, and a tire gauge.

They charge for air down corolla way but on hatteras island it's almost always free.

CKMTP12 is only on the Oz web site.
It will inflate your tyres as fast as a servo air supply.
