I just pull the stem and use a gauge...fck staun. Only takes 10-20 sec to air down anyways

Arb air down tool and done..

Them deflator auto things are expensive, a pain in the ass and unreliable imo.

That and the arb tools is very accurate

I use trailheads, I set them for 12psi and screw all 4 on, gives me time to set up for where I am going.

core remover and a pressure gauge. 15 seconds a tire. thanks for the tip on that one Todd.

Oasis has some nice ones.


But I just pull the core and use my snap on dial gauge.

I got 4 that screw together and attach to a key ring. Unscrew all 4 put them on tires have a safety meeting then pull them off and I'm done

I like the arb one used to do the pull core thing and lose a core or two
sucks trying to find it and hold finger over stem
and the arb one is probably cheaper than a snap on gage
but neither will hold up to high heat just sayn

i like the smittybuilt airdowns...
i dont sit there waiting for them to air down ..as the pressure lessens
---- they do slow down as they are a spring valve design-----
i put em on and drive for 5-10 mins......
.pull em off put caps back on.......
they work awesome...
the arb ur still sittin tire by tire doin em
and im not doin that unless its on the toy(stauns) which take like 5 seconds a tire..
sucks on a rainy day airin down each tire....
and on the raptor with 37s at 44psi goin down to 15 takes to long even with takin the core out for me:) ....
i just screw on the smilty builts and they do the work for me..
think they are like 55$.....

just my 2 pennys on a product i didnt think was gonna work for me ...
but ended up working great...
no more 20minute stops at the start of the gravel to air down..
which is nice especially if peeps are waiting for my late ass...:)

i have a set of the oasis deflators and i wheel with a guy that has the stauns and a guy that bought cheap knockoff stauns off ebay for $15, they all seem to work the same.

definitely faster than pulling valve stems, and you can stand around and drink beer while you wait.

On a quick test they seemed to drop my 31's from 30 to 12 ish in under 2 minutes. Not bad

a good knife will deflate them faster than that [15][15]
