Tires and Beach Driving... Recommendations??

Hi Guys, Most of my offroading is in the sand. I noticed that I have some issues turning and climbing out of existing tire tracks with my stock tires. I am airing down sufficiently and am figuring that I need a tire with a little bit more of an aggressive tread for gripping those turns. I am not getting stuck but I do want something with a little bit better performance out there. After all, can't make the tacoma look bad.

Any of you beach drivers have a tire that you recommend?

Will increasing my tire size make a difference? I know it looks better but is it really necessary?

Thanks.

Now I dont have to much experience with the tires I got on my truck but I have some Nitto Dune Grapplers, 285/65-18"s and I took them out on the dunes for the first time this past weekend. I didnt get into anything to deep and soft but they worked out really well IMO. I use them more for off-roading and trails to be honest. But like I said, that was my first time out on the dunes so dont just take my advice. That and the fact that they are not cheap in price.

I do alot of beach driving as well and I have had good luck with Pro Comp All Terrains and BFG All Terrains. You should stay away from aggressive mud tires because in the sand they will only help to dig you down, you need a tire to stay on top. Also wider is better...

Thanks for your help with recommendations. Did you notice any significant decreases in your reg cabs performance when putting the 265's on?

Firefighter160 is correct. all terrains are the best for sand since you need a little bite but not too much because it just buries you. slicks get the job done but they aren't great at it.
i always drop my psi to about 22 psi.
i love watching "Type A Cockheads" try to show off for girls and get buried down to the axles.

I must say I get a kick out of the guys with big luggers,and refuse to airdown,getting themselfs ito a jam. They just dont get it.

Airdown to 15-20 psi and your good to go.
