whats the lowest psi i can go? on a p235 75r 15x8?

going to the dunes next weekend and i'm going to need to air down. So what would be the lowest before my tire collapses back in? i'm thinking 15psi should do me good without breaking the bead?

you would be pretty safe at 10 PSI. you could go even lower but thats up to you, on sand the lower the better.

you can start a little higher and drop it down if you struggle at that PSI. If it makes you feel better start at 15 and work your way down if needed.

no problem. its kind of a trial and error thing sometimes to find what PSI will work the best for each wheel/ tire combo.
