I have no idea what these things are called, but I remember seeing them somewhere. You screw these little things onto the valve stem on your tires, and it automatically deflates your tires to 20psi, or something to that effect. Does anyone know the technical name for these, or know where I can pick up a couple for some Xmas gifts? I hate sitting there with my keys for two minutes a tire, and if you unscrew the stem, you're screwed if you drop it in the sand, so these things would come in handy for glamis!

I've had a set of those Oasis tire deflators for a couple years now. They kick ass. It's cool cause you can stop as soon as you hit the dirt, thread them on, take off, and remove them once you get to your first stopping point. Also you should see the look on peoples faces when you pull up and all 4 tires are leaking and you just take off like nothing is wrong!!!! Only thing I don't like about them is the tire has to initially be twice the pressure of what you have them set to deflate to. For instance if you air down to 20PSI for them to work you have to have your tires aired up to 40PSI. Kinda sucks cause I run my tires at 25PSI on the st. and air down to 15 on the dirt. So usually I just thread them on and pound it, they tend to break loose and start working on a hard hit.

I have found that the sand that is found in the Glamis region reguires around 11 lbs. to help manuver your 4 wd sand toy.Little S-10's and Rangers will require 12-13 lbs.I'm a tire expert.I know this because I stayed at a Daze Inn once...or twice

You should consider purchasing screw on tire deflators that are in the form of a key ring. They run about $5 each and work great. No "automatic" feature to them but you can screw them on and chit chat while the tire is airing down. They are made so you can check the pressure with a gauge without removing it. The key chain is 4 of them screwed together. Once you get good, you can do all four tires at once. They are available in several colors!

(I said screw!)

JR-
Any off road store should carry them. Contact our buddy Wally @ORW Escondido. Teraflex makes the keyring set

see attched image-


These handy tire deflators make getting ready for the trail much quicker. Each deflator will attach to the valve stem to allow gradual tire deflation. Deflators can be screwed together for easy storage and can also be attached to your keys. (AD1-2)

ya, the $70 ones come with a carrying pouch, and a little wrench to set them at whatever PSI you want... but like mentioned in the above post, it has to be atleast half the psi that's in your tires, unless you wanna kick start 'em

The "Staun" deflators are about $50 bucks and are adjustable between 8 and 35psi. They only require a few pounds difference to work properly. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.staunproducts.com/>http://www.staunproducts.com/</A>

You can search for them on Google.com to locate dealers in your area.
