New member from Perth (WA) Hey guys my name is George and live in Perth around the coastal areas of bunbury
Have recently just bought a New 2012 Xtrail Ti Series 4 so it has the lot.
I bought this car specially for the beach and the large boot so it will be specially for the out doors.
So the first problem i have come across is the 18 inch wheels. Went through some sand next to a beach yesterday and just found my tyres kept spinning and spinning so didnt end up 4wding through the beach. Any suggestions on what tyres to purchase or things to help improve my exy going through sand on the beach? Do i need to change my rims to 16inch or can i just upgrade my tyres on the 18inch rims and get some better tyres for the beach?
Also is there any companies that will buy my new 18 inch tyres if i were to get my wheels?

Re: New member from Perth (WA) Sand grip might have more to do with the tyre pressure than the rim size.

It will keep you confused for hours
