Tire size for Sand dunes
Ok, stock my titanic came with the 275 65 R20 GY AT's (pizza cutters). I'm wondering what is the narrowest tire our truck needs to get through sandy areas, like the dunes for instance. I live in FL and it's just miles of this crap off road.. miles and miles of sand trails. My 35x12.50 Procomp Xtreme AT's are the most aggresive tire I'll be putting on, and in sand the smoother a tire is for the most part the better. (no MT's). So lets say comparing a stock CC/SB FX4 F150 which I believe comes with 275's... or 265's... and a stock FX4 F250 Diesel which comes with 275's. (let's assume both trucks have 33-35" tall tires), What tire size would get the F250 to the Fx4 F150 level in the sand? B/c weight is the issue here along with foot print, airing down etc I know.. but I'm trying to get an idea here to level the field. B/c if my 35x12.50's are overkill, and I can get away with some 285 BFG's, or 305 Toyos... Might do it for the MPG's and street manners.
B/c I never took it stock out there in the sand pits, b/c on those pizza cutters I was scared %&$*LESS about just sinking through the sand and getting stuck.
