Offroading with 22's
 
Just wondering if you think its ok for me to off road with my 22's on my jeep. By offloading I mean driving on the beach and some water crossings (not deep). Its just an annoyance to take them off every time I was to go. I know that since the tire is thinner I won't get as much surface area, but theses tires are wider then stock. Do i even need to let any air out?

I drive on the beach in my 20s all the time. Just make sure you have 3-4 coats of sealant on them before you go near salt water

do you deflate your tires at all? with my stock tires i drop them to about 15psi. The 22's are painted and polished. they look like they have a clear over the whole thing but every time i get home i completely was the car.

No i dont change the pressure for sand. I would still seal the wheels because salt water is a bitch lol

I didnt have a single problem all of last summer. Even when the beach was closed due to soft sand i was still able to drive like it was pavement. Im sure the 315 rear tires helped a bit lol

I wonder why they tell you to let the pressure out if we can make it so easily!!! It so annoying to let the air out and fill up
