Need a good sand tire, particulary soft beach sand, for a 95 wrangler 2.5 I was thinking about either BF Goodrich AT or MT (some say Mud tires are no good for sand?) We are required to air down on public beaches. This jeep gets practicaly no highway use, so a semi aggresive tread is ok. Thanks in advance for any and all input.
DO YOU HAVE ANY LIFT ON THE JEEP? IF NOT GET SOME 29X11.50 15 MICKEY THOMPSON BAJA BELTED OR AND A BODY LIFT AND GO WITH A 325/60/15 (31X12.50 15) BF GOODRICH AT OR MT OR GET THE 31X13.50 15 MICKEY THOMPSON BAJA BELTED. THE BIGGER THE FOOTPRINT THE BETTER TO DISTRIBUTE THE WEIGHT OF THE JEEP TO KEEP IT FROM SINKING.
95 yj Rio Grande 2.5L
31" BFG MUDS, 1"BL,2" homemade spring lift, 150W KC'S, KN Filter, both air restricters gone, track bars gone, quick discos, & high flow cat

I had Mickey Thompsons Baja Belted tires about 10 years ago on my Ford Ranger 4x4 and they did well on the beaches of Delaware and Maryland. They wore down in a little over 10k miles on the road, though. Believe me, I had the alignment checked, balancing, etc. They were also loud but I kinda liked that :-)
BTW, glad to be a Jeep owner now...

I have General Grabbers AT on my CJ-5 they were on it when I bought it. I have taken them in lots of what we call sugar sand here in FL and never had a bit of problem.
They are 31X10.50 on 15X8 wheels. Don't drive it much on road so don't know how long they last. The prices I've seen are pretty resonable too.

25psi? We run more like 10psi in the sand around here. 12 max. And we definately run some sand out here on occasion. Here's some old pics at Glamis when I was on 32" tires. Granted, they were mud terrains. But I still contend the ATs work better in soft sand.
