    I am going to florance in 2 days. I bought a Viair air compressor that won't arrive at my house until Wed and I am leaving Monday morning. Was wondering how much do I need to deflate my tires in the sand without braking the bead? Will it be ok also if I drive around the rode with low air pressure?

    On sand, I have gone as low as 10 psi. Some have run 5 and 0 psi with good results. You just have to watch how fast you turn. You dont want to roll the tire off the wheel. You shouldnt drive on the road with underinflated tires. They can blow out.

    10psi is a little much... I was thinking 20 or 25

    It also depends alot on the sand. If its deep soft sand, lower psi is nessesary.
