    I just got some 38.5 x 15.5 x 15 Bias ply Ground Hawgs. Mounted on 15x10 aluminum rims.(No beadlocks) What psi should I run for offroading? It will be mostly mud. The tire sits pretty flat right with 26 psi in it. Should I go down to 20 or lower. They have stiff side walls so they should stand up well. Thanks for your responses. I am used to 35 BFG's which respond very nicely to airing down.

    You can probably go to 10 or 11 psi safely. You can go lower but you loose steering and can blow a bead. It's pretty hard to loose a bead with a 15 though especially in mud.
