I've got 33 x 10.5 BFGs and a set of 31x13x15 paddles I run on my hooptie with 22re 4cyl

works pretty well in the sand allows me to use 3rd and 4th gear.
Rather than 2nd and then bogging in 3rd.





That said last few trips to the dunes i have just run my regular tires aired down to 10 front and 8 rear... works great 🤡



Really can cruise around pretty much where ever with in reason in 2wd...

If you can keep 4x4. I would.

What psi do you run your paddles?
What wheel width with those paddles?

I ran my 33" tall paddles which would go flat overnight, I started them at 15psi and by end of day they would be around 10psi. I would air them up in morning to 15psi with onboard air and I was going to remount them with tubes if I even got around to running them again.

IN my little yota (Like Elliots) I would run 5-8lbs in the rear in glamis on my BFG AT 31's.

Did you have beadlocks while running that low psi?
No. 7 inch wide outlaw 2 wheel. I currently run 12ish lbs on an 8 inch wide wheel non beadlock because the 4runner is heavier. Only had a bead issue once over the 20 or so years. Got sand in the bead causing a slow leak.
