Airring down for the trail

Heading to rausch creek and running 33x12.5 pro comp m/t on 15x8 wheel no lockers. Running mostly greens and maybe a few blues. What air pressure you guys recommend to air down too? Thanks in advance!

Well Out here in the desert with my cheap Hercules 31X10.50's I drop it to 10LBS and have not had any issues. By lockers are you talking diffs or bead locks? Just curious.

I usually go down to about 15 psi if I am just running greens and blues at Rausch, just enough to soften the ride. I will drop down to 10-12 psi if I am running some of the harder stuff.

12 psi is great for normal trail conditions.

Try to stay at around 15 PSI to be safe, you should have enough traction. Dont air down before you hit an object, so think ahead. If you know that has rained a couple days before or there is a lot of sand/mud, try to go to about 12 psi, if its just dry and basic rock work, stay at 15.

the correct meaning of lockers are diffs. Newbies are getting them confused!
