you want the wide tires to keep the traction in the sand. if you air them down then you will have a really nice footprint
edit: also you may want to trim a little with a 4" lift or bumpstop maybe both

I like my 33x13.5 ltb's more than my 35x12.5 bfg's. Never tried the 34x10.5, thats a little skinny for my liking.

There is a rumor that Interco is already or will soon make ltb's in a 35x12.5. If this is true I want a set for the next snow-wheeling season.

I'd go for the wider ones. Snowshoe effect - more surface area means less weight per square inch on the sand, hence you stay up. You don't want to dig to the bottom like you might in mud with skinny tires.

I have the 34 x 10.50 LTB's and they are a little skinny. I'd say go with the wider tires for sand.

They are a little rough on the road with the big lugs and bias ply (flat spot that lasts for a few miles until they heat up), but I love them off road. I do mostly trails with some rocks and occassional mud.

They can be difficult to balance though.

I have 4.5" RE lift with extra coil spacer in front and trimmed with bumpstops in front. I have no rubbing at all. I also have 4" BS rims. You'll need to do some work so they won't rub.
