    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards. Therefore, the time has come to move DVTalk to a more modern, better equipped campsite. All visitors wishing to post must register.

So what kind of tire repair kit/supplies do you guys carry when you're out there, in case you do get a couple flat tires?

How do you still have your teeth, at 32 psi on 10 plies? I generally run 12-15 psi off road on my 6 ply. The tires are more pliable to wrap around rocks for better traction. The lower air pressure provides a smoother ride. There is arguably a reduction in the potential for cuts from sharp rocks, as the tire can flex more easily.

LT rated tires only should run lower pressure. P rated tires sidewall's can't handle the additional flex. In addition, if you have a heavy rig / camper, don't go so low as to exceed the tire's load rating.
