I regularly run 7-8 psi in 35x12.50 tires on 15x8 wheels. They have burped out enough air to go nearly flat a few times on an extremely tough rocky trail but no tire has ever become unseated from the wheel.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

I run 10 at Badlands, but could go less if I felt the need. As low as 3psi in the sand dunes. I have found that when you go below 7-8, it gets real easy to spin the wheel in the tire making things out of balance for the road trip home.

A quote from my wife: "I don't even want to know how much it cost, I'm not in the mood to be that pissed off today."

do different tires handle low pressure better or worse than others? or is it pretty much the same for most MT type tires?
