Low profile tires not aired down. Took this truck 4 attempts with the hammer down to get off the beach. This also creates those annoying washboard bumps along the beach.

(August 11, 2021) … You might want to consider airing down a little more than usual tomorrow into the weekend. Mostly for the heat and the wear on your vehicle and transmission, but also for the beach’s sake. The hotter sand tends to be very loose, we call it sugar sand. Aggressive tire tread is really bad in loose sand.

Faithful Steward is really loose towards the Charles W Cullen Bridge. Herring Point to Gordons Pond is just messed up. The Lewes Rehoboth Highway is getting overused.

It is much easier to drive across hot loose sand with less air. If you air down to 20 normally, drop to 18 psi, if you air down to 18 go to 16 psi.
Thee least I have ever aired down is 12 psi but that is pushing blowing a bead on your tire.  Take it nice and slow too, it will help keep your vehicle cooler. Vehicles that get overworked, especially jeeps, can blow a transmission line, or boil fluid out of the dipstick, and then catch the engine on fire.

Aggressive tread is not good on sand, notice how it digs itself in especially if not aired down.

We will see serious heat tomorrow leveling off into the weekend with possible thunderstorms. Be safe and smart out there. Stay hydrated!
Beer is not water, unless you’re drinking Coors or Miller lite. Then maybe drink more water for flavor.
The people who don’t air down will get stuck even faster, enjoy the show.

Fish On!
