For those with Dually tires

Questions that make me go


What tire pressure do you run them on the street


What tire pressure do you run them on the gravel roads


What do you use to take off the inner vale stem cap


With a portable pump what do you use to fill your inner tire?

get longer valve stems for the inner tire. for pressure run max when at max load and less as load decreases to prevent over pressure and crowning

I got some longer stems for my inners but I still can't get to them. Because of that I just run high pressure all the time.

with lower tire press the rears are more susceptible
to trapping rocks between them and then taking out the sidewalls
and you are still putting a load on the truck with the trailer

In snow I let some air out of the outside dual , that way Im getting more weight on the inside one , more traction because less footprint.

That's only running around empty
