Exclamation Is there a way to get water out of my tires?

So I have been going to a drive on beach that's close to me and so obviously I have to air down and after need to air up so I use the air compressors provided by the beach but they don't empty the water out of the compressors which gets water in my tires and i want to know, how do I get the water out easily?

You have to dismount them and shop vac or towel them out. Nitrogen may absorb some, but it will re-condense depending on temp/pressure. If you have aluminum wheels, then some water in the tire isn't going to cause much of a problem unless it freezes. Steel wheels, of course, will rust.

Balance can also be affected depending on the amount. I had to reseat a bead in a creek once and once I hit the main road I about $&!! My pants!

You could always rig up a hose to connect one end to the valve stem and another to an a/c evacuation pump. The pump will pull a vacuum at which point the water will evaporate. On an auto a/c system this takes about a half hour, but no idea how long it might take on a Jeep tire.
