I used to air down to 11 psi before beadlocks
only lost 1 bead.
Now I go down to around 6 psi with beadlocks

Very nice videos.  Chris, Flimflam...great work!!
I agree but he didn't look aired down to me. It will ride & crawl better.

Yeah that was some serious rookie action going on there.  //;D// Thanks to Chris and Mike for patience in guiding me through.

I aired down to 18 but maybe my gauge is off some. I could probably go down more since I have those E-rated Ridge Grapplers...
I drove the bright green tj and I ran 10 psi on non beadlock. I had no issues and I worked them pretty hard at that psi. Lower will help a lot.

The times I have run 12 psi at Morris. I popped 2 beads.  Too much skinny. ( might have been less psi  than 12) I have a better gauge now. 15psi is comfortable, but 10 -12 really hooks up.
I run 14 front and 13 rear. Seems to do the job for me.

I run around 10 front & 8 rear on steel wheels. The XJ weighs 4k empty.

My sidewalls where super stiff and for the first 7 rides I ran 3 psi with the beadlocks. Now that the sidewalls flex much better I am running 6-7 psi with bead locks. 

I used to run 10 psi with no beadlocks and lost two beads in 4 years of wheelin.
