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.

Mike.
