As for tire PSI that really depends alot on the vehicle. Weight, tire size, tire weight rating, etc... will all play into it. For example on my old jeep on the road i ran my tires at 35 psi. It had 32s. On my current jeep i run the 37s at 22 psi on highway. For offroading starting at 15 is probably a good idea. If you feel you need more traction then go down in psi. The only trouble is if you go too low you can pop a bead. I used to run 8psi on my old jeep and never had an issue, i currently run 12 psi. Trial and error is the easiest method but there is actually a science behind it. One of the magazines i read had a whole article on it that was pretty enlightening but i wont bore you with details.

Simply put just start at 15 psi and go from there.
since you told me about this I haven't used anything else. I love it! So much faster!

I grabbed a set of the Staun on sale for ~$40. I have them set for 8psi on my 33s and have never had any trouble. They aren't as fast as the others, but they are tiny (easy storage) and I can do all 4 at the same time.

yeah i like the idea of having all four of them at the same time, i'm still set on just grabbing a pair from Teraflex the maybe going to ARB at the end of summer, i got a few other things i need to buy first. hopefully those ones from Teraflex will get me through the summer.

I use stauns, they are a bit pricey but its nice to screw them on and forget about it. If I'm in a hurry I will just screw them on and drive down the trail for 5 min or so, then hop out and take them off.

I have some eBay $20 deflators (set of 4) that I screw onto each tire and they stop at a predetermined setting. I wheeled with a guy that used a stem puller and he was done with all four of his before one of mine was down to 12psi. I now have a stem puller. And btw, I went to Teraflex before I bought mine from eBay and all they had was some $60 ones. The $15 ones don't stop at a predetermined setting. Buy a stem puller and a $2 tire gauge from the auto parts store. Just my $0.02. Or you can buy my deflators for $10.

Do they stop deflating at a predetermined psi setting?

Yea, that's what I was saying before. The cheaper ones don't stop.
