Military Grade Tires

Despite big axles, a gnarly suspension, and dual lockers, the driver of this big-tire TJ just couldn't drop the pressure low enough to get the huge sidewalls to flex or the tread to work. He was at 4 psi and wound up pulling the winch cable. Even with the valve cores pulled, we don't think these military-grade tires could really be made to work on such a lightweight vehicle. Sometimes air pressure adjustments just can't compensate for tire misapplication.
