Unfortunately I am on facebook, And over there they are recommending everyone air down their tires, That it is all but impossible to go off pavement without doing so. So now everyone is buying expensive 12 volt air compressors.It is true that not all tires are designed with airing down in mind and you can indeed damage tires that way. And it does increase tire wear. And yeah, I am also sure that there are idiots out there doing stupid things with their tires.
But the tire wear is well offset by less suspension wear and greater ride comfort. And not getting stuck or getting unstuck? Priceless.
I have bought cheap 12 volt compressors for years the air up my threewheelers and fourwheelers. And I know the four wheel drive crowd has aired down for years.
