When you want to be let down, and let down fast, there is no better product on the market than Staun Tire Deflators. There is nothing worse than heading to your favorite trail or off-road park and having to spend the first 30 minutes of your limited time fiddling around with deflating your tires and other devices that only do one wheel at a time or just slowly let out air.
Get right to enjoying the trail within 2-3 minutes by using these Staun Tire Deflators. Straight from the factory they’re calibrated for 18psi. I tend to run my tires right around 22-23 psi myself – a little more air than what the factory sets these too but making the adjustment is easy.
How to set up Staun Tire Deflators
If you want to air down to 18psi, just unscrew your stem caps, screw on the Staun Tire Deflators and repat x 3 for your other tires.
If you want to re-calibrate your Staun Tire Deflators to another PSI, then check out this excellent YouTube video they have on setting them up.
Tire Deflation for Off Roading
There is no formula here that I’m aware of, it’s just people’s personal preferences. You don’t need to air down at all for off roading, but I find the experience to be worth the time/effort.
Since I tend to do more overlanding with a trailer and rooftop tent vs rock crawling, I air down all tires to about 20-25 PSI mostly to smooth out a rough road. If you get much lower than 20-25 PSI, be sure to verify that your tire/wheel/rim rating can support vehicle weight and not lose bead. (Separate sidewall from rim)
Be sure to always re-inflate when driving on roads or above crawling speeds. If there isn’t a trail or road service for inflating your tires, be sure to bring along a trust inflator. I use the following one and it airs up super quick.
- Auto-thermal cutoff switch - protects motor against damage
- Maximum continuous cycle time (duty cycle) - 40 minutes at 40 psi at 75 degrees Fahrenheit
- Maximum airflow - 72 liters per minute. Quick release 24 foot coil hose
- Integrated easy to read 150 PSI pressure gauge
- Storage bag included
Staun Tire Deflator Review
Price – not cheap. $99 dollars on average +/- $10 dollars or so but you get what you pay for. I purchased a cheaper $25.00 no name set, and I couldn’t get them to deflate to a standard PSI to save my life and they were slow. They released air until they eventually stopped releasing air whereas the Staun deflators release are at high pressure until they hit the set PSI – taking must minutes.
With everything being hours away or daylight being worth its weight in gold, I love hitting the trail in ~5-minute air down time. I just screw these on the wheels, do a vehicle walk around inspection – check my fluids, unscrew – recap wheels and off I go. Please don’t drive with these on your wheel, it’s a quick way to lose them or damage your rims.
