I've been looking for some tire deflators for this summer for a road trip. But I'm having a hard time finding the best but not something too extreme and expensive.

Stauns are the best but I run the currie EZ deflator currently. Smittybilt makes similar ones to Staun and ARB makes a similar one to the currie. There are a ton of options out there that all do basically the same thing. The EZ deflator is around $30.

So you took a tire pressure checker and took the measure stick out?

No you clip it to the stem and the bolt deflates the tire. I usually do 2 tires at a time just check with a gauge.

I use 12 most of the time on any terrain but have gone to 10 a few times. I wouldn't go much lower though.

I use Stauns , they will deflate to your preset psi and stop . You can air down all 4 at the same time . If I used the tube style , I would end up letting all the air out of my tires by mistake , then have to air back up before doing my trail ! I never air down lower them 14 psi on my 35s . I don't want to reseat a bead or change tires on the trail if I can help it .

I have a set of the Staun deflators.
I keep them in the package, in the Jeep. They are kept clean that way.
They work well, but I wonder if they require any maintenance? Silicon spray lube? Probably not a petroleum product. I assume rubber seals?!?!

I REALLY like my ARB deflator (same as Currie). I had the Smittybilt ones (fake Stauns) and I wasn't a big fan.

I run the Currie deflator. I've had it for a couple years and love it.

I use the Viair deflator with the gauge. Works pretty good.

I found a new technique, get a matches and inserted in the air valve, the air will come out like crazy, when you are done just take it off.

I bought those too and had the same impression. I run the Stauns now and love them.

Im leaning towards the stauns right now, but curious on how often you need to "recalibrate" them once set. The concept is pretty cool, basically an adjustable pressure relief valve (very similiar to the safety relief valve on the garage compressor) adapted to a shrader.

I've had mine for a year now and have never had too. Same with my wife's set. Wouldn't hesitate after having a set of the smittybilts then staun I would go staun.

Good to know. Dont mind spending a few (maybe 50) more to do it right the first time and be set
Thanks

I do a lot of sand riding and camping and have been thru many sets of deflators and spent stupid $$$ on these things. Stauns are the best. but just like the others out there they are... How do I put this "delicate" you can't beat em around, get em dirty or do other things you do in your truck/jeep... They will change pressures, stick open, stick closed, just a PITA.

I can air down 12 tires to about 15psi in like 10mins on my truck and trailer.

I got me a bag of valve stem cores for extras and one of these and be done with it... Tool was $4 and you know how many cores you can buy with $50!?

I had a set of those many years ago and perhaps they improved a bit, but I found after they got a bit dirty they would not unscrew from each other. They also seemed to not hold their adjustment.

I wound up just using an air chuck with a nipple on it. Clip it on and air comes out very fast, check tire pressure every few seconds on the nipple, pull chuck when desired pressure met.

These do not have any adjustments; you simply screw them on and they rapidly air down. I simply walk around the jeep screwing them on, then walk around and remove them. They work so quickly that the timing is just about right. Also, they don't get clogged or dirty because I keep them in the console tray when not in use.

I have 2 sets of the Stauns, but they are inconsistent at best. Granted with in 2-4lbs, but can't beat the gauged deflators that capture the valve core for accuracy and dependability in my book.

We use this. Im kind of wierd about everything being around the same psi :D :D

Inexpensive, nice steady slower bleed (better for me) and made in the USA.
