Trip Report August RME Trail Run - Hanging Tree Trail

I think we were the only group on the trail on Saturday! :oops: :rofl:
There was a small group, about 3-4 crawlers, on Sunday. They parked at West Campus. There was also another group, ATV's and SxS's, that was was in the area Sunday that parked on, and used, Tom's land without consent. I was not able to catch up with them, unfortunately.

43" SX2 that measure out at just a tad over 40" at 5psi. I've been running these since 2012 and I still haven't broken them in! They are a stiff tire but I'm plenty happy with them.
My Creepy Crawlers were super stiff when I got them too, and they were 10 years old! I ran them around Sand Hollow at 0 psi for a 3 day wheelin' trip, I had to put air in them by the last day. They worked way better after that too. And my rig is pretty heavy about about 4800 lb

That's a good idea... I should pull the cores and just drive up and down the road to see if I can get the beads and sidewalls to loosen up a tad. I still blow air out the inner bead often because they are so stiff!

I blew the inner bead all the time. Even after they were broken in. I think it is an artifact of the bias ply construction. I got so sick of it that I actually sold the tires. Last time I ran Pritchett with those tires I started at 10 psi. Shortly before the "play" area right before rocker knocker I completely lost a bead and flatted the tire and I had to air the other 3 up at the top of axle hill because they were all around 3 psi. They burped constantly on both the raceline and kmc wheels I had them mounted on. I ended up buying a set of raced (very abused) KR3s for too good of a deal to pass up, so the Creepy crawlers hit the road.
