Re: Sand tires
It depends on how you are gonna be running in the sand. If you wanna blast through it, like a sand rail, then build it like a sand rail. Big wide paddle like tires in the rear(boggers for example), then a tire of similar diameter, but skinnier up front, build with good power to weight ratio, a slightly higher gear ratio(3.73 for example),use locking hubs up front so you can unlock them, then stay on the skinny pedal to keep the front light. If you wanna build it to be able to get from point A to point B at four wheelin type of speeds then use as wide a tire as you dare go to and air way down and go play, boggers work very well, but so do aggressive MT style radials. The trick is wide meats and low pressure.
If at 1st you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again
