Tire Deflators

I was thinking of buying a set of Staun deflators. I am wondering if their reliable for the set pressures and if if the pressure can be easily changed. Do need two sets for two different pressures?

I have 'em. I love them. They're very convenient and easyish to set. I would set them on the high side then air down the rest for different terrains rather than buy two sets.

Yeah, in the airing down contest at the beginning of the trails, I always loose. What do you have yours set at?

Mine are set at 15 I believe. If I need to go lower I do it by hand.

I have the Trailhead Deflators. You set them to the pressure you want (9 psi for me). Once you put them on it will drop the tire to that pressure and stop. At our ORV park the camp ground is 2 miles from the trail head. So I put them on when we head off to the trail. By the time we get there I am aired down and ready to go. All i do is pull off the deflator and go, or walk around and help others deflate.

Edit: I see the stauns work the same way, nevermind

I have a set, and they're great! I usually put all four of them on, and for that couple of minutes while I'm waiting, I take the timne to dosco the front sway bar, and give the Jeep a once over before the run. I keep mine set at 8 PSI, and so far, I haven't noticed any variance with them over time.

I use the set deflators also down to about 8 pounds. I find they have to be reset about once a year. But I can also drive with them on. So I toss them on and then head out to the trail. By the time we get there I'm ready to go. I think the ones I bought several years ago were the Oasis.
