tire deflator??

For the first time this weekend at the Topless for Tatas event, I aired down, well, I didnt, my guide did it for me. He used a guage that threaded on to the valve stem and removed the core to let air out, then stopped when reached his goal. Im interested in what everyone is using, and can you reccomend one for me? They had means there to air back up. Can this "gauge" also be used as a regular tire gauge when airing up or is a seperate gauge needed? Thanks from the newbie

That Currie deflator is awesome. Fastest deflator I've ever seen. Love mine.

For airing back up I just use a cheap gauge from an auto parts store.

I have a ARB e-z tire deflator that sounds like it works the same way as the one you described. It removes the valve stem to air down very fast then you just screw the valve stem back in.

X3 on the ARB type deflator, I use a different pressure gauge for re-inflation.

So neither the Currie, or ARB can be used to check your tire psi, like when airing back up, both would require another gage, correct? Just want to make sure I got it right......thanks for all the help guys..

I use Staun deflators. Preset them for the desired psi. Screw them on, walk away then remove them when they stop deflating.



The ARB/Currie deflators although hands on, are by far the fastest way to airdown.

Don't see why it wouldn't work but never tried it with mine. Seems like a little too much messing around for inflating. Auto shop gauge costs a couple bucks and pops right on for a quick read.

I use trailhead automatic deflators and have had no problems with them. The kit also comes with a tire pressure gauge.

Get a quality Milton pencil gauge, that's what I am using and it's just as accurate as my Blue point dial gauge.

I also have a Currie deflator. It would be a PITA to use it for re-inflating. You'd have to screw it onto the valve stem to check the psi. A separate gauge would be easier. I have a built-in gauge on my inflation nozzle.

I used to have the Staun deflators. They worked great. You could screw them on and they would deflate to the preset psi even while driving. But...the problem with the Stauns is that they are not quickly adjustable. Say you preset the Stauns to 15 psi. But then you want to go down to 10 psi. I bought the Currie deflator so that I could air down to any psi and then gave away the Stauns.

I use some screw on types by Oasis off road, they are really convenient, I definitely recommend them. Been using them for about 13 years now. All the set and forget screw on ones are basically the same.

I find the Staunch deflators to be inconsistent. The valves stick and don't deflate correctly.
