Brent, those 255's started to get nice and squishy around 14psi.
14psi makes me nervous but you'd know about those tires better than me
I was thinking 20 would be a good starting point, looks like i'll be going a little lower. Depends a great deal on the terrain too though.

Agreed on the terrain. I started with 18psi and worked down from there. Just never got much sidewall flex at 18.

I feel around 10 you start to loose too much clearance versus what you're gaining with grip.

I didn't even air down for da beach. Should of cuz the washboard sucked.

my trail head deflators are set at 12-14psi.

And popping a bead on the trail is an easy fix with a ratchet strap as long as someone has OBA

I set a bead on 4 tires in my driveway with a ratchet strap, a $15 walmart tire pump, and a set of jack stands. It can be done.

I'm very familiar with setting beads after my rim fiasco. sheets pretty easy. I was able to get 2 of 7 beads set with no straps. Worst case you bust out some ether on the trail. Pop said the bead!

As far as beach driving I always go down to 20 and head out to check the sand conditions. If the sand is really hot, dry, and chalky I'll go another 5-7 but that is it. I did find that while my old set of MTR's were decent in the sand, I aired them down to 15 and could hardly tell. Them sidewalls!

Don't do rock crawling so have nothing to add there. I grew up in south eastern coastal NC where the only off-roading was year around on the beach and hunting season.

My first memories were bouncing around in my dad's 68 Bronco on Carolina Beach.

Oh yeah.........Good Morning!
