  1. Reducing tire pressure when off roading can improve traction and comfort. Sometimes tires can spin around the wheel and tire/wheel become out of balance. Sometimes the tire can break the tire to wheel bead and lose all pressure and deflate. I made a video on how to fix this problem. Use paint pen marker or nail polish to make balance alignment mark on wheel and tire before deflating tires. To fix Use ratcheting strap and car jack to break tire bead or drive another vehicle over tire to break tire bead if needed spin tires around wheel until balance alignment marks line up spray flammable brake cleaner or parts cleaner into tire/wheel cavity, spray a trail 1 foot from tire throw flame onto spray trail, after tire bead pops onto wheel ( may need to step on tire to introduce air into tire cavity) , inflate tire to desired tire pressure
