    Do you air down?

    For those of your running stock rims and tires, do you air down when you go off road or just leave them as is? I got the 21''s and not really sure what I should air down to or if I should air down when going off road.

    Re: Do you air down?

    No, I don't air down unless I'm going on sand.

    I've been running road pressures on my 20" road tyres, and they have coped so far.

    But in sand I air down to 1 bar, sometimes to 0.8 if it's a hot day and the sand is very soft.

    I would not suggest airing down with stock 21s. You will pinch the sidewall and lose a tire.

    I bought 20 inch rims and put BFGoodrich KO2's and love the setup.

    By the way - were you on TFL the other day with your RRS?

    If you were - then well done for taking it to Moab and using it properly!

    I have the stock 20 in wheels. I air down to between 18psi-24psi when driving in deep sand. I do not air down when trail-driving or what I will loosely describe as light rock crawling, for fear of a sidewall puncture. Both approaches have worked out well.
