    I have asked this question before also. Stephen Watson runs them down to about 6 PSI with no inner beads off IIRC. I think Steve fox has them also but I don't recall how low he goes. I have not read of anybody loosing an inner bead with the Trailreadies.

    I usally run around 10 PSI on the trail, good balance between tire flex and ground clearance, drove them on the street once with 4 PSI with no problems.

    thanks for input....

    do these wheels have that safety bead lip on the inside so the tire doesn't pop off?????
