Recommended Posts

So I was out this past weekend and man I felt like I was driving through train tracks on the sand. Maybe I was running to much tire pressure on my car.

10 in the front and when it's dry 10 in the rear. Pump it up to 15 in the rear after a rain.

8-10 in front

15 in the rear

 

from my experience:

the lower you can run in the front, without taking the chance of bending a wheel, the smoother it will feel.

rear, the lower you run = more hookup, less sliding... helps stick to the side of a dune on slow runs when following someone... the higher you run, the more slide you get.

I have broke about 3 front rims, maybe the car is just heavy, I run 28psi in the front with 12''x3.0  quad bypass, Dumont, and the Rear I run  8psi 3.0 fox bypass with 2.5 shock/coil on a 35.5 tire

28psi in the front and still taco'ed a rim following Alper once.  😜    9psi -12psi in the rear. I would rather slip a little than spend money on trans.

big cars are like trailers heavy they are the more air,  itsweeks bent a rim on his DD car running in the teens of air pressure, have not bent a rim after going into the twenties, if you are trying to dial the ride in with air pressure, might want to spend more time on the shocks, each part needs to do its job,

It seems like it matters what tires, or size tire you have. My last car I ran 15 in front and 20 in rear. On this car if I put 10 in the paddles they look like balloons. These are smaller tires than my last car.  Not sure if it matters.
