Whoa!! Wolfies asking a REAL question!!

Got a set of medium duty Stauns arriving soon from my neighbor, and life long friend, my TJM man.

Now, he tells me that they are preset to 18 psi at the factory, and one turn = 3 psi difference.

I am thinking of setting 2 for stony tracks, eg. Oodnadatta, and the like, and the other 2 for sand.

Okay, here's the question.....

Honda HRV, minimum load. With me & gear, probably pulls around 1500 kg. tops.

16" Cooper Lifeliners.

What 2 pressure settings would you guys recommend?

Mitsi Delica.

Pirrelli Scorpion Tyres

Medium Load, Wolfie & Mrs. Wolfie, and gear..... around 2500 kg.

Again, what 2 pressures?

Cheers

Wolfie

Its a bit of a how longs a piece of string thing.

Sand driving, sand can be hard and wet, so really you dont have to do much, but it can have the 'wind blowovers' on the edge of hills, so its soft as Kim Beasleys butt.
This is the main thing I see as a failing...

Same as with 'dirt roads'...
Some are dry rocky and harsh, others are totally different.

You really need a few sets of these things, all set at 5psi different.

Or set them to say
25psi and 18psi

I'll stick with my ARB Twig... :)~

Mine are set at 25 and 18lb.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

A twig?

Just how primitive is that?

My car came with a free of charge option, and I believe some others do as well.

It's called a Key.

I also have another option that allows me to do two tyres at once. This however is a very expensive option and has cost me many thousands over the years.

It's called My Son.

lmao
steve

I actually remove the valve core out of the tire, and count to 30 that usually gets me down to 18ish psi.. or close enough anyway...

"Tracy, come hers and have a look at this."
"Mmmmm...... who is this Des Lexic Chap Ian?"
"He's a chap from the riverland love."
"How did he get to find out my weight Ian?"
"Ummmm........ I think he did some math's love."
"Ian, is he going to be an attendee at the Murray Sunset Park?"
"Yes Tracy."
"Mmmmmm...... "

Oh dear Des!!

What are we going to do? LOL!!!!

Wolfie,
I'll be at the Sunset get together and without fear. I didn't say or suggest that Tracey and her gear weighed approx 1000kg's. It was your post that I was referring to and maybe tracey should leave you at home. LOL Look forward to meeting you and Tracey.
My problem is that I will have to lose 500kg's before then . Bugga
Cheers
Desmond.

Good luck setting them! They would have to be the most inaccurate piece of equipment imaginable. Set them, then double check them .... be lucky if they are within 5 psi of each other.

I'm with the other guys, mine have not moved from when I set them to 16psi. And I check them with a good gauge that I have checked against 2 other guages. Work good for me!

I have though about setting 2 of mine to 25psi like the others have, but seem to need the 16psi more often. (lotta sand here in WA)! :-)

Yes you will need to play with them for a while. The trick seems to me to be. They will go down to the same pressure if they start at nearly equal pressures. If you start two at way different pressures. ie one at 36 psi and the other at 22, they won't both stop at 18. So when you are setting them do it at the servo where u can use a big compressor and pump the tyres up to normal pressures before doing any setting. Then check them. This may require a couple of runs at pumping up and deflating. Once you have done this though, they are plenty reliable enough for use.

I set mine 2x20 and 2x25. The ony time I have had mine adjust themselves is when one of the lock ring things came loose. Otherwise they have been set at those pressures for 13 months without moving. I know as I check the pressure with a gauge sometimes after letting the tyres down just to be sure.

This is for a Rodeo which would weigh in at 1900-2000kg at a guess empty.

Mine are the late model all brass ones and I've never had them shift pressure wise.
If you have the earlier ones that do shift pressure wise Staun were replacing them with new ones if you return the old I heard.
I've got one pair on 16 and the other on 30.
I too would leave two at 16 and then set the second pair in the mid 20 's range. 16 gives you the option to let more out if the sand is too soft or bogged.
I'd bludge a second set for the second vehicle otherwise they will be in the other car when you want them.

"Flaccid Wolf"?

I believe you can get help with that. There's some new miracle drug available, can't vouch for it myself of course, but I think it starts with V.

I can vouch for it:
the Very Best: VB.

One for the stauns: If you stick them on a tyre with pressures close to where you want them to cut off at, sometimes they dont deflate at all. pull out the little round post at the tip of the stauns when they are screwed on, and they will go about their business then cut off when they should.
