Question, for lighter trails, should you still lower pressure ? If yes, how much, just few psi (eg. 33 down to 30) for that little extra edge or like down to 25-27psi ? I'm guessing no need to go less if not doing any serious terrain, big rocks, etc.. ?
And does using tires this way, ruin they roundness (out of round) or something like that, causing them to be rougher ride after re-inflated ? Or even just using on off road conditions itself affect their performance ?
Cause after my hunt trip (tires were new), but on way home, they were less fuel economy, and slightly louder than on way up to hunt trip…. maybe just in my head.
I happened to read something similar a few months ago and can't wait to try it out now that my wife gave me a compressor for Christmas.
Lower pressures also provide increased grip and less risk of punctures in slow rock driving scenarios. Same goes for any slowly driven, uneven surface. Lower tire pressures (but not as low as for slow rock crawling) can also be of benefit when driving on faster gravel or dirt roads by allowing the tread to conform to the individual stones or sharp protrusions to help prevent puncturing. Remember to keep in mind that the lower your pressure are set, the lower your speeds should be.
