Folks Who Air Down for Offroad Question

So I take a tire from 35psi or whatever down to whatever you do to offroad (20s?) Doesnt this give the TPMS a fit? Or basically you just offroad with the idiot low pressure light on? Be gentle as I am a newb.

Just wheel with the light on. It won't affect anything. If it bothers you get a programmer for $150 and you can shut it off. Or go the black tape route. For me it's not a big deal. Doesn't flash so I don't even notice it.

I disabled TPMS on my rig, and I usually air down to 10-12psi. Gives you sooo much more traction, and a softer ride.

light is supposed to come on - it also reminds you to air up afterwards.

I run all winter with takeoffs without sensors. The light is nothing to worry about.

going down to 10 is ok mostly for sand and dirt, just make sure you have a spare incase you blow a tire bead. I wouldn't recomend going under 15 if your on rocks. Just my opinion... I know our general rule of thumb is; if you don't have bead lockers, stay at 15 lbs or higher.

However, sand is very forgiving. We've run down to 7-8 pounds in sand. Just remember to air back up before you hit the road lol.

It really depends on your tire. We have a guy in the club that runs at 4psi - sometimes 2.

For stock tires most people I see dont go lower than ~18-20, but with my 35x12.5x15 MTR's I go down to 10 and drive on the road at that pressure as well with no issues

Post a pic when that happens! Of course what will actually happen when your dash lights up like a xmas tree is, you'll be so excited you'll forget to take a pic.

You'll pop a bead at 4psi.

A big 10-4 on the picture! I will be proud and bring a bow or star for top of the steering wheel too just so it looks like a tree!

FYI- if you get a Procal you can re-set your TPM sensor to whatever you want. Mine is set to blinkie at 8 PSI.
