If one waits until he is in deep doo doo to air down, quite often it is too late. Just like the ones who wait until they are stuck before they shift into 4 wheel drive. Most of the time I air down and shift into 4 wheel drive right after I leave the pavement. This takes it easy on the drive train rather than flog along in 2 wheel drive with rock hard tires. This abuse of the vehicle eventually takes it toll.
I have pulled/winched out probably a dozen vehicles with rock hard tires because they (1) did not want to lose ground clearance and/or (2) wanted to protect their sidewalls.
