I dont generally airdown either unless we are approching loose sand.
I have one of those "Truck Air" air compressors also. I have had it for about 5 years and use it all the time. Saw it at Performance products for ~$80.00 and found it at Kragen Auto parts for $30.00!

Over Easter weekend got a flat heading up Emigrant Cyn right at the first hair pin turn, a large rock jumped out at us and sliced the side of the 32.11.5 BFG like butter!!
Tire was only 6 months old!!
Put on the spare and drove back to Ridgecrest to A & L tire on Inyokern Road and got a new 32*11.5 and a used spare BFG 32.11.5 for $20.00!, it had more tread that my spare did.
A & L told me that they are the only tire store in Ridgecrest that carries BFG.

Went to Sears yesterday and got a free BFG 32*11.5 to replace the tire I lost.
