Yes I air down currently but the new JP will be stock for this trip. I want to air down but this will be a new experience with said brand and size. Does anyone have personal experience with this tire off road and aired down? Trip will be Colorado mountain trails. I will want to air down as far as needed. Between 12 and 18 PSI is my hope/plan. Thx.

My JP had the stock Falken's on it and I've wheeled with some other stock JLUR's with the BF's, we all would air down to about 15-18 and it was good for most of the trails around here. It's hard to say since you're in the diesel and it's a tad heavier, what trails are you trying to play on in CO? I've been as low as 10 psi on stock rims with both 285's and 315's but it makes me a bit worried i', going to pop a bead.

Last two years on a stock JLUR with the 3.6 in Colorado I aired down to around 18-20 and it was a pretty comfy ride. I didn’t have any issue or concerns about popping a bead and had plenty of traction on the ko2’s

We are in the planning stages now but most will be the usual that are discussed in popular videos of the area as well as found in the following book. Some examples are Imogene, Black Bear, Engineer pass.

Don’t have the rubicon but for what it’s worth I aired down my stock sport 245’s to 15psi playing on the rocks before the lift and 35’s and never had an issue. I had the Goodyear wrangler Kevlar tires.

I've had the K02s down to 15 psi on the trail at Rausch Creek, and they worked well. Our guide said most factory wheel/tire setups can do 15 psi without a problem.

KO2s here on my 2018 JLUR. Both 285 and 315. Run them at 16#. Better ride and good traction.
