A lot depends on the sand. Conditions change w/time of year and weather. The bigger/wider the tire the better. Air down... psi depends on type of tire, but generally, lower is better. If U don't have 4wd, then stay on the packed semi wet stuff... if U don't and get into soft sand, then your gona get stuck... airing down won't help.
I've helped/pulled many a newbie out of sand cause they did'nt know how to read the stuff or drive in it.
FWIW... I run about 5-6 psi! but that's in the dunes.
Side note: if anyone has seen the lastest Pirates of the Caribbean, the part where Jacks ship slides down the sand dune to the ocean is @ Devils slide near Pismo dunes... but thanks to the wonderful Sierra club, that area is now closed!
