Tire deflators

What brand of deflators do you use? Are you satisfied with their accuracy?

Yep.. I use the metal one that has a white plastic thing that shoots out to tell you the tire preasure.. Great for airing down and measuring your air preasure.. Im sure there's better out there but it's all I need for the wheeling I do

I use the basic cheap kind that are manual, they are slow but you can check your process with a gauge as they go.

Have had the trailhead for about 6 years. Throughout that whole time they have never been more then a half pound off.
Wouldn't buy anything else after having these.

I bought myself one of the Currie EZ deflaters and it works superbly. Drops my tire from 29psi to 13psi in probably about 45 seconds or so and its built-in gauge is pretty accurate. It actually removes the valve core to let more air be released. I know Jerry Bransford uses it and last time I went everyone kept asking me to use it lol. Only $30 too

I use the Trailhead Deflators also. Two trips around the Jeep and you're set!!!!! They're the best!

That's what I've used for years now, I'm very happy with them. I built this calibrating tank to set them to the psi I want. Much faster and easier than using the spare.

Ditto on the trailheads, bought mine from a local autoparts shop in Delaware, never had any issues on the beach with mine.

Unless you usually run 14 psi in your tires, you should be letting out more than 2 psi.
