It will make a lot of dust, noise and ringing sounds, it will hurt the tires, it will dig potholes in the field but it will not help you to progres

The more a tire is road-suitable the less suitable it is for off road driving and vice versa.
while driving off road we want our tires to have a good grip and not get damaged. We also want the tires to contribute to the comfort of the ride. Reducing the air pressure could be helpful for various things.

Sand driving. It can be great fun and it can be deeply frustrating. Here are 10 tips to keep you safe
1. Lower inflation pressure. Don't go by time ("a minute and a half") and do not try to assess it visually. Rely only on the air pressure gauge. The inflation pressure should be lowered to 15-12 PSI. Depending on the initial inflation pressure of the vehicle and depending on the sand condition. Sand in winter or after rain is tighter and easier to drive over....[read more]
