Re: Scenic RX4 locks up in sand- stops but not bogged

Thanks for the reply OZRX4,

Still have it, still love it. Diesel and a low range box would be better.

Do you think wider tyres would help, or bigger ones?

The fan site? love to know where it is.

The other option for the short term is to just pop the ABS fuse when you are going to be driving in the soft stuff.
BTW, the road profile/tread pattern is better for the sand than dedicated off-road tyres unless they are sand type tread because a more aggressive tread will dig you a hole where as road tyres will keep you above the sand.
Did you let any air out before venturing onto the sand? Down to 22psi for a start(with gauge) I wouldn't go too much lower with a road tyre.[/QUOTE]
