Airing Down Tires

What do you guys do to air down tires. I was thinking about purchasing something similar to Staun Tyre Deflators. First time I was out on the beach (last sunday) I did it the old fashioned way by pressing in the valve stem to release the air. Took me probably 15 minutes to do all 4 tires continually letting air out and checking. Im looking for an easier way.

I use a tire deflator kit from Trailhead. You have to spend a little time calibrating them but they work great. I think they were around $45 from amazon.

I like cheap, or home made, but I also like easy and fast. I was thinking maybe the ARB EZ Deflator http://www.amazon.com/ARB-ARB505-E-Z...3502429&sr=1-1. $20 cheaper then the Iron Man Speedy http://www.4wd1.com/tyre-deflators.htm

There's also a much less expensive version of the Trailhead deflators that just stay open forever till you remove them. You just keep walking around the truck checking the pressure until they reach the pressure you want.

Cheap, fast, works great.

But you have to unscrew them to put your tire pressure gauge on them to keep checking current pressure, or you go by counting seconds which can vary by tire temperature and altitude. I did consider this alternative.

No, you take the pressure THROUGH the deflator without removing it, while its running. It's easy.

The pressure gauge pops onto the deflator in the same way as it does the schrader valve itself.

With mine you pre-set them to deflate to whatever psi you want. When you get to the beach and/or trail you just screw them in and they deflate to that pressure and stop. Don't have to check or anything. You could even drive with them on if you want. I go to Assateague Island on the beach and there are a ton of horse flys that eat you alive where you stop to air down. Its nice to throw on the deflators and get in the cab quick.

ARB EZ Deflator: 35.50
The unique patented design of the ARB E-Z Deflator allows the valve core to be removed to deflate the tire rapidly. An integrated sliding valve provides an accurate reading of the tire pressure while deflation is in process. The valve core is securely held within the sliding valve mechanism during deflation. Packaged in a canvas pouch, the ARB E-Z Deflator is the perfect addition to your recovery kit. Make sure you have a compressor or CO2 system to air up when you're done playing.
