    I have noticed that when I air down my heavily modified Beach Cruiser I get such good traction. Am I insane ? And I wonder why I am sore every time I ride to the beach...hehe

    Whenever I go wheeling, I air my tires down even before I get into the terrain.

    Weather it be sand, rocks, or mud, airing down will do wonders for your vehicles performance.

    BTW: I usually air down to about 17-21lbs with 33"x12.5" tires on 15"x10" wheels

    Airing down gives you a bigger foot print.

    It's the only way to fly. It makes your tireflatten out at the tread area (footprint). It works especially good on sand.

    Anyone know where to get those little auto. deflators that are preset to a specified pressure? You just snap them on and the air is let out to about 15 psi ... off you go!
