WOW! 78 MPH? You're much braver than I am. Sure hope you don't have a tire blow out at that speed.

I upgraded from factory 15 inch D rated tires to 16 inch E rated increasing my load capticity by 5000 pounds. Running at full 80 PSI. No problems as tires never get hot. Only barely warm like the truck tires. It's running at speed with right at or over max load that causes problems.

How was the storm last night? We got a bunch of thunder and some lightning, but not nearly the rain they were predicting. There were a few hail storms in Waco...

Do they allow UTVs instead of golf carts? And I've heard stories about mosquitos in TX. How about that?

No UTV or ATV..golf carts only.....unless registered and tagged like a car. Golf carts have to pay a city registration/tag fee. The beach is a public road. Most states stopped issuing titles that can be tagged. There was a polaris ranger on the beach yesterday. Was registered in Pennsylvania. They thought they had it made and was showing off. Cops stoped them....They received a ticket for operating a registered motor vehicle with.....NON DOT approved tires and had to load it up. They had the stock off road use only tires.

The mosquitoes are not a real problem. But like everything in Texas...bigger...

Thanks, I'd hate to trade our Rhino for a golf cart. And it is licensed in AZ for raod use and has DOT shoes. We're thinking about switching winter HQs to somewhere new.

Speed limit on beach 15 mph, carts run around 20. Cop don't bother carts.
I have rzr and ranger at home. Cart great for beach.
My wife and I went to south padre in January. We drove 33 miles each way, in the cart, north to the land cut. Whole day trip. Used less than 3 gallons gas.

You can start at the national park in Corpus Christi and drive south to the land cut...about 80 miles one way. Your licensed rhino would be great for that and legal everywhere.
