ok i just too my truck out with my new 38.5x15x16 boggers and i blew a bead withing a hour of playing around. there on 16x10 rims and i was running the fronts at 10.5psi and the rears at 8.5psi. i ended up blowing a front one. i didnt think i was running them too low. what do you guys/girls run them at. are my rims not wide enough? anyways i didnt get a good look at the bead cause i blew right in the middle of a huge mud pit. that wasent any fun changing that let me tell you. so i hope that they didnt fuck up anything else. what is a safe running pressure for in the bush?

Are they new rims?

If you try to please everybody, nobody will like it.

Be carefull about low air pressure spinning and turning too sharp , always carry a can of ether and an air compressor:D

10 inch is a good width, wider rims you would probably blow the bead way easier.. i have 35x14.5x15s and i can run 10psi no prob.

also has to do with the way you drive with low pressure. Cant turn while you are stooped and Ya no spinning

I sucked my 35 x 14.5 Boggers onto an 8" rim and I can run mine at 2psi no problems. Been doing it for 5 years, not one blown bead.... Then again, it is a Samurai. I know Dentedup (Paul) runs his 38's under a full-size at 8-12psi depending and he doesn't have bead issues [cheers]


And to think..... my bead locks will be in tomorrow [wako]

i run 35-16-16 boggers on 16X12 rims (the recomended size) and have only blew like 3 beads, and when i blew 2 of them, it was obvious no matter what pressure you were at, you were gonna lose a bead.

i also run between 2 and 4 psi and this is on a f150 with a flatdeck.

Like stated already: narrow rims help hold the bead, not wider.

On my fullsize, I don't drop the front lower than 15PSI. But that's mostly cause I'm not equiped to re-seat a bead.
