I bought a truck that had braided steel line with check valves on each pair of duels. Wow! Easy to check/air. Put them on the truck I was working. Got to a bean field, MFIC says "Dump just this side of the gap in tree line. Somewhere in that field the dirt pulled/broke valve stem. PITA to get all the dirt out of tire. Bet sand would be about as bad.

Yup, very tough to bead up a tire coated with mud, pebbles, sand, etc even in a shop.

1) what devices do you use to air down tires that is accurate.


Deflators and a tire gauge.

I've had these Staun Deflators for 20 years now and they work great. I have them preset at 15 psi which is fine for most beaches around here. These are nice because you can screw them on, enjoy a cold beverage, and they automatically stop letting air out when they reach the pre-set pressure.

If you have regular LT E rated tires you won't have any issues breaking the bead as long as you stay above 10psi. Anything less than 10psi puts you at risk for breaking the bead.

If you are new to the beach it's a good idea to go out with someone your first couple trips. Also be aware of the state and county requirements depending on which permit/beaches you plan on using.
