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.

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

Staun deflators-get what you pay for only 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.

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

So you have bead locks then?
Humvee two piece wheel with a PVC Internal bead locks, the best way to go if you want to keep your jeep street legal.
