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?

Fill em back up with dry Nitrogen after you air them down again.

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. :)
