That was true in 1975. Back then the belts could shift. Tire manufacturing processes have improved a bit since then, yet the myth continues.

I'm gonna jump in a year later...
'12 Rubi 2dr with BFG KM tires on stock 17x9 wheels. What is the lowest tire pressure I can get away with and not have to worry so much about the rubber flopping of the rim?
I'd be driving on sand dunes, and mild rock trails in the summer and unplowed roads and snow covered trails in the winter.

Hard to say what is the lowest you could run. A lot depends on how you drive, aggresive or conservative. Personally I air down to 15 psi for off-roading an it performs fantastic. I know of a couple of guys that will air down to around 6-8 psi but you will never see me airing that far down. One wrong bounce or slip sideways off a rock and the bead will pop right off the wheel.

Most dealers air up the tires on all of their vehicles when they're delivered in order to not have the TPMS go off when they sit on the lot. They should air "down" to the pressure that's on the door jamb when prepped for delivery, but it seems like most don't. It's a lot easier for them to over inflate then try and explain to a customer why the new JK they're buying has a TPMS light. They could even clear it with their Starscan programmer but they don't seem to do that either. Air down to the pressure on the door jamb and it will be fine. Most likely 37.
