Let some air out of the tires but not to much. I usually run about 20 psi seems to work for me

If you air down your tires, your ride will be much smoother and your tires will grip more.

This is a common technique of taking air out when off roading then putting it back for street driving.

Air them down to 12-15 psi (if you have 8" wide rims) and you'll be amazed.

You air down for more grip and a bigger "footprint"...more of the tire contacts the surface, giving you more control....when done wheeling, you air back up. Preferably *before* you hit the street again...lol

For a long time I was just too lazy to air down and suffered the consequences of a rough ride. Man, was I stupid. I got into some sand once and got stuck. That was bad enough but I had an audience of bikers watching to see what would happen. I bit the bullet, aired way down and went on my way much to their disappointment I'm sure. After that, I'm down to around 15 whenever I get off the pavement.
