    Im wondering what tire pressure you guys run your Iroks at on the trails and rocks. Going playing this weekend and would input at what you guys like best, I dont have rock rings on my rims.

    i ran then at 22psi on the street. i never needed to air down on the trails, but in the sand i took them down to 8psi on 15" steel rims w/o any problems

    8" 10" or 12" rims


    If you run 8 you can run it a little lower, but trail pressure sould be 10-15 psi depending on rims.

    10 front 8 rear on 8'' wide rims but my sub-buggy only wheigh's 3700lbs. I have had exellent results and only blown 1 bead but I jamed the tire sideways into a huge rut going faster then was reasonable. Irok's conform and flex better than other tires I have ran at similar pressure ranges. J

    This applys to just one type of terrain but on slickrock such as Moab, going from 10 to 8 psi was an amazing difference. So like has been said start at 10 and go as low as you dare

    What? I don't deserve a response? 4-5 lbs would be entertainment for the rest of us on Sat. and you would get great traction until.....:D Hey what time were you thinking for today? call or something
