    I travel to Mozambique quite often and as a result need to deflate my tyres for driving on sand. from doing this I seem to get a lot of punctures on the sidewalls.

    From my research I have found BF Goodrich and Cooper. They appear to have stronger sidewalls. Does anyone know if its good to deflate these tyres?

    If anyone disagrees with my shortlist what would you recommend I get for my 4 x 4 Fortuner?

    Yeah, tyres deflating in sand could be asked for depending on the sand.
    Tyres pressures are important and if the tyres are good should be no problem!!

    Coopers have had issues with cracks on deflated tyres and you will have difficulty with the warranty claim

    @pandy Mozambique has nice beach “roads” as well
