Irok and air down on non-beadlock

Is any one running these without beadlocks? And if so what psi?

My plan is to run the 37x14 on a 17x9 wheel. Right not I have the Irok NDs in 305/70r16 on the factor 16x7 steel wheel. With out doing rocks but climbing some and some concert having them aired down to 18psi serves me very well.

I'm thinking of going down to 10-12psi on what I have now. But with out beadlocks how well do Iroks stay seated on the bead?

I am planning on running the 17 in version of the irok no 305s on my JKU rubi and was wondering if you had anything more to add since you first posted this

I ran mine, 37x14r15 on 10" wide wheels at 10psi last time I went out. Popped 2 beads 2 obstacles in a row. One in a pit, the other on a hill climb. Welding on beadlocks now.

I run the 37x14 Iroks, but on Hutchinson beadlocks. I have found they work great at about 6 psi. Without beadlocks I would think 12 is a safe bet. Great tires. I have been very happy with my set.

37/14 are available only with bias ply, as recommended on Interco website u have to install your tires on 17x11 rims.
In my opinion do not deflate below 5 PSI without beadlock, the risk of popping a tire bead is high.

Yep, they are the bias ply and work fine on a narrower wheel. I would never consider going anywhere near 5 on a non beadlock. Without beadlocks stay in double digits.
