David Wilson, director and lead instructor at Adventure 4WD has been a 4WD trainer since a time before the internet. He lives and breathes life off the beaten track and is passionate about sharing his knowledge. We want to help Dave spread the word, so every Wednesday; Toyo Tires will be sharing one of his snack sized 4WD tyre tips.
Tyres down to tackle a nasty track and compressor nowhere to be seen? Don’t despair.
Let your tyres down to tackle that nasty section of track, and forgotten the compressor? Don’t despair. You’ll still be mobile, albeit at a slower pace than before.
You are certainly taking things into your own hands, so what follows is just a guide.
At 15psi you’ll likely be safe up to 30km/h, whilst 20psi should be good for speeds up to 40km/h, 25psi to 50km/h and 30psi might be good for 80km/h or more. There’s plenty of scope in that lot to get you back to a service centre, a fellow camper or a farmer’s house to bump them back up.
