With living in Arizona, we have sand but not in all areas and not possibly the same conistancy. All I can offer is that Mickey Thompson makes a good sand tire w/ the Baja and Claw series. It's just the compound is too soft for the HOT AZ pavement. The BFG All-Terrain KO is good, so it the BFG MT (but anything with a very aggressive tread will bury you FAST just do to the sand moving easily and freely.) Keep you momentum at all times and stay "on top" of the sand and you should be OK!

Woody,
Hell - I dunno, I would think a bogger would dig and sink. Yet, depending on the tire size (12.50, 14.00 etc) they might work. Don't have THAT much sand in AZ. <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif">

Let me know if you try them, I am curious now!

Boggers rock. The kind of sand that you see in pismo, or any other dune for that matter, will be very soft and unlike sand anywhere else. You will want a tire that will float as well as dig. Boggers are so wide, they float, and the tread pattern acts like a paddle. They flat out rock in the sand. Believe me, you want the tire to dig. As long as it is clawing at the sand, it will be pushing you up the hill. Aggressive mud terrains are the best tire, with the exception of paddles, in the dunes.

Boggers good or bad?

I've seen A LOT of guys in NC running Boggers backwards. Instead of clawing through the sand, they act like paddle tires.

mickey thompson tires do good, so do the Xterrains, and yes boggers do very well, especially when turned around like someome said, as with any directional tire, they increase the paddle like effect of the tire even more. i wide tire will help a lot as well

i think for sand the best tire is BFG All-Terrain... when those things are deflated to about 12 PSI, they give really good traction in the sand
