Re: Tire deflator kit/tool and inflator gun with gauge
I also have the Staun set. It comes with four deflators; I have two set at 25 lbs and two set at 20 lbs. 25 lbs ones are colored blue and the 20 lbs ones are red.
I air down to 25 lbs once I hit the dirt for an extended trip - did several hundred miles in Baja last week that way. On the beach I air down to 20 psi.
If I'm back on the asphalt aired down to 25 lbs I don't really worry about it but keep the speeds down around 60 mph, at 20 psi I just cruise 35 to 40 mph until I air back up.
Last week I got into one of my favorite camping spots just south of San Felipe without airing down, getting out didn't go so well - buried it to the front and rear hub on one side and was sliding down the hill off the main line in deep sand.
I aired all four down to 20 psi, was able to back up a few feet and then "rocked" my way out until I was moving and didn't let off until we hit Terra Firma.
The Stauns cost around $60.00 but sure make it easy and fast.
