Default 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?

what?? no..... i'm drive 146 miles to pismo lol i'm not going cross country to the dunes. And its a edge so it has already a 2 inch lift all around and with max t-bars it gives it a little extra if a honda civic can go on the dunes im more then sure my ranger can go on the dunes.

ill be airing down to 15 psi. and as long as you take turns slow there are gas stations in town that have air pumps where you fill up for free lol my favorite is 7-11, only a few minutes from the dunes

i had to put my rear tires down to 8 psi before i could get around easily in pismo, but that might have been cuz i had mud terrains. drive smart and you'll be able to go almost anywhere. also, just a tip when airing down: if you remove the valve stem core, it will start to whistle when the tire gets to ~15 psi
