Has anybody dual-sport their sandcar?

Been thinking about going on some mild desert rides with my buggy in some of the lesser rocky areas. I picked up some desert tires a while back from @sandmandanbut they are a bit too wide. I'd also like to go with a taller skinny look like some of the desert buggies I've seen racing. Thinking 35x10x15 on 5.5 inch beadlocks might be the look I'm going for. Gives it a decent amount of clearance but not too wide. Any input?

I recently saw this Funco down in Havasu at the Mudshark Brewery. Love those shaved Mickey Thompsons. I may even go that route on all 4. If you have any pics of desert tires on your buggy, please post em up.

Full hookups, then hang at the lake, then can dune and some mild desert 

 

I think we should do it! Sand Hollow is awesome. Let's go there for Halloween weekend. lol

I live in Hesperia and we run the buggy out in Johnson valley occasionally. run out to Slash X periodically. The only thing is the tires will grab little rocks/pebbles and hurl them at the car occasionally. I run 35" BFG mud terrains.

Awesome. Thanks for the feedback and pics. I was worried about that and am hoping all terrains might be a little less rock throwy. Lol

 

Do you know how wide your front wheels are?

The fronts are actually metric but come out to be 34x8.5 the rears are 35x12.5x15

 

ok that helps. Thanks for the info. Just trying to figure out what size to go with. I have a full set of 33x12.50x15 but that is much too wide for the front. I may buy some 33x10 or similar sxs offfroad tire and mount them on 5 or 5.5" wheels.
