Tire deflators

16 posts in this topic

Hey guys, so I’ve never bothered using them. I’ve heard mixed reviews, and from time to time I see people screw them on and drive away immediately. What’s everyone’s thoughts on them, and which ones do you recommend the most. I’ve seen a few different brands and if I’m gonna buy I’d much rather have feedback first. Thanks!

I use Staun and have not had a problem with them in the 2 years I've been using them.  Definately makes it a lttle quicker getting on the beach.  I always remove them when aired down and put the caps back on.

Used Oasis for years w/o any problems. 4 in a kit, do all tires at the same time.

One is for sale on the BST today at almost half price.

 

Sorry, just saw that they sold already.

Have been using the Oasis for a few years now and have not had any issues so far . I do not drive with them while I'm airing down but have seen people do it.

I have the Stauns.  Does not take long to deflate from 80 to 20 psi.  

Have the front set to 18 and the rears to 22.  Very accurate. Within 1psi.

Would not recommend driving with them in the sand.

Stauns here too. I don't drive off with them still on, it doesn't take long to air down. Not sure I see any negatives to driving off, tires should be low and close enough to done by that time. But you will be driving on uneven PSI for a short period. I'd be mostly concerned with the deflator getting sand grains and maybe ruining the threads or clogging the air release.

The Stauns are what I use, they're great. 

All they are is a adjustable, spring loaded check valve. Driving with them on isn't a good idea. Any time you hit a bump or anything that would put more force on the tire, you could push more air out the valve.  And as mentioned above, the sand could mess them up.

All good info to know. I’d rather play it safe than try to gain an extra few minutes on the beach. No sense in driving with them on
