My family is planning a trip to the outer banks this summer and I was going to drive down to meet them for a week. I know they have some 4x4 beaches and I was wondering if anyone has experience driving in the sand with summer tires. I am planning to get a set of Pilot Super Sports to replace the Dunlops that came with the car.
I have no desire to get an all season tire since I have a dedicated winter set.
I know that I would need to lower the tire pressure to around 15-20 psi
Also I am aware they I would get sand all over and in the car
I would need to bring an air filter cleaning kit or a replacement filter.
Other then that does any know if I would have difficulty driving around in some what packed/loose sand. I dont plan to go on the dunes just around the beach.
