Expedition Portal recently reposted an article from ARB called, “The Lowdown, Off Road Tire Pressures.” It’s pretty comprehensive.

If you’re looking for the condensed version, the author writes that he runs 34–38 psi on the street, 20–22 psi offroad, and even down to 10–12 psi to “get out of trouble.” In those situations though he’s extremely careful not to drive too fast or turn too hard for risk of damaging the tire or rolling it off the rim. I do the same and run about 15–18 psi in the sand.

Generally, he writes, the lower the tire pressure, the slower you have to go.
