    I have only aired down to 16-18. Quick question, non-beadlock wheels what is the lowest you would run?

    I typically run 15-18 on stock rubi runs with 35's. I might be able to get away with a little less, but why risk it.

    Went to 12 in my old jeep on a Moab run with no beadlocks but only did it for 1 trail and got a little nervous about it so ran at 15 the rest of the trip, no issues

    I usually drop to 12 when running a trail. Running 37s, no beadlocks.

    On my stock Rubis I aired down to 12 all the time with no issues. Again mainly rock crawling and not a lot of desert runs.

    On my Brute with new 37 Toyo MT's on beadlocks, I run at 10 on trails, 6 for sand and 4 for snow...now that the tires are older, I add about two psi to everything...

    On the JK6, the Baja KR2's sidewalls are a bit stiff, so I run 8-10 for the rocks and 3 for snow...I haven't gotten into the dunes with it yet, but will this year

    I was just going to post something like this. I typically go down to 15, however with the stt pros (which I see that the OP has), I've found these things to perform just as well at 20 psi. The sidewalls are soft and these things just stick to the rocks. Ran a trail this summer and one of the guys pointed out that my tire was flat and it sure looked like it too. Checked it and it was at 15 psi.

    This picture doesn't show it well with the glare, but this was it.

    35 BFG KO on the 17in original 2007 aluminum rims here.

    On snow I go down to 10psi and works fine for me.

    On other trails with rocks, mud and other stuff I keep around 15psi.

    So far, I love the STT Pro's, like you said, they just stick to rocks

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
