Ideal PSI for Mud Bogging?

So I totally had a dumb moment and forgot that I have been mud bogging with 32 PSI (I am also not sure if that is even bad? i just know with less PSI more footprint right?)


So what would be the ideal PSI for mud bogging and/or rock crawling, offroading

"airing down" is a sort of "jury rigging" more traction... If you can get away with mudding at 32PSI then you're much better off. It depends on the tires, the mud, and the driver. I usually only air down when I really need to (mostly because I hate airing back up), but keep in mind that if you don't air down until you need to air down, and you're playing in the mud, you're gonna get rather muddy
