    Default BF Goodrich KO2

    Have been told conflicting tyre pressures when driving sand in the BF KO2's. What is the lowest (within reason) you can drop the pressure for sand

    This essentially depends on your sidewall availability and not running the risk of debeading...

    what tyre size do you have?

    O.8 bar, if needed. But it has 3 ply sidewall thus be careful to use it at that pressure for long distances. Heat built can be an issue.

    265/75R16 KO2 ran them at 0.7bar cold rising to 0.8 once warm in the dunes for 6 days in the Namib. No damage to the tires or a single debead in the 600km we did.

    Thanks for that, I was told not below 1.3Bar which I thought was still high
