    @TheDuckaholic Hey thanks for the coment! I think I need to update this video.
    But the basic concept would be the same “Low PSI= more contact with the road”.

    I think I was running 38 inch tires in this video. I now have 40inch Ground Hawgs! I’ll have to update this video! The only problem with airing down is airing back up! Big tires take forever!

    hello good sir! thanks for the video! i just have one question if you dont mind helping me out but your front tire looks like if the suspension would to compress that it would hit and take out your front bumper? i may be wrong but how does this work?

    @TheOxTube
    Thanks for the comment. Yes there are issues with the front bumper. It was close. To fit larger tires 17×40 Ground Hawgs it had to be trimmed and moved forward about an inch and a half. If you like 4x4s check out the Playlist on my channel!

    What’s it look like with 0 PSI?

    @jaime8907
    Thanks for the comment! I am trying to get out this weekend to the sand dunes to make a updated video. This video was one of my first and could have been much better. Anyway I hope you get the idea for low PSI.

    real nice video and very helpful : ) will this work with my 94 Buick century? i mean the thing is already a tank and i fly by slow asses on the road in bad weather going 65-70 only cus im confident in my driving : ) but what tire pressure would your recommend for the bad snowy days.

  9. rudedogii December 12, 2010 at 4:23 pm #

    @Fritz1945 Thats a good question. You freaking crazy guy! That car is a tank! The problem I think you face is icy roads. Icy conditions are the worest no matter what presures you run. Check out snow tires. I dont mean off road tires. Some tire companys make snow tires for passenger cars with special treads and rubber compounds for icy roads. Studs or tire chains are the next best thing.

    @mrjeromethegnome Like a flat tire!

    @TWBrit I see you have radial tires. These are Nylon bias tires and do not bulge like a radial.

    @xXxmidgexXx Tubes?

    @bangsimeister Good comment man! Yes it does depend on the driver. I tell people all the time slow and easy, think, and look for the best track.

    Those are Centerline Coolers. No longer in production. No bead locks.

    Fantastic video!

    poor guy! gas ford runnin 38’s? ouch!
    overall an informative video! I run my new duratrac 35’s at 44 pounds on my 3/4 ton ram, and the ice traction is not great but milage wise they are the same as my previous 33’s! airing down is uncommon round here, cause we dont get mud like you guys!

  17. rudedogii January 7, 2011 at 1:26 pm #

    @jmanwild Gas is going up again! Thanks. I wanted to know how are those DuraTracs?
    I have gone thru 3 sets of MTRs. Great offroader but dont last on a daily driver. I hope the Duratracs last!
    Just remember if your every stuck in sand dont panic just lower the psi. In one of my playlist is the story of a tourist in Australia that was stuck in the sand. If only they would have lowerd the psi, they would have lived.

    @rudedogii wow. some people are uneducated when it comes to offroading. im no guru myself, but i dont get stuck very often! although i do get stuck, people who dont get stuck are usually afraid to hit the deep hole, or be the first to break the trail! busting into fresh powder is my fav! the duratracs have great dirt and snow traction at street psi! haven’t need to air down yet, and verrry quiet for an mt! cant even hear em! 3600 pound load rating, and not bad in mud! great for weekend wheelers!

    @jmanwild Did you see the Ray Mears video?

  20. jmanwild January 9, 2011 at 11:42 am #

    @rudedogii nope? what is it about? where can i see it?

  21. rudedogii January 9, 2011 at 12:19 pm #

    @jmanwild Hey how much are those DuraTracs? I was just on-line with some people in Australia and they got a quote for a 265/75/16 DuraTrac for $402.00AU! Prices are high on everything in Australia.
    Anyway I posted a link on my Tire Pressure video. Just click on the link.

  22. jmanwild January 10, 2011 at 4:33 am #

    @rudedogii 400 each. goodyear had a rebate of 100 dollars when i bought them so 1500+tx and install and balance. not too bad.

    awesome example of foot print. psi makes a huge difference!

  24. QuickPressure April 3, 2011 at 4:27 pm #

    Tired of checking tire pressure? Try Quick Pressure tire pressure monitor caps (available from PSI 26 to PSI 165). Just replace your valve stem caps with the monitors, then the monitor will show green if the tire is properly inflated, otherwise it will start to show red. The monitors are welded, chrome plated brass, high quality. Save gas, save tires, and safer drive.

    Boring first half, however the second portion was really good. I liked how he actually showed the footprint growth as you air down. Alot of people have this misconception that your footprint increases mainly in width.
