Tyre pressures on the Gibb River Road
Your story about people and their tyre problems reminded us when we went to the Gibb River Road / Mitchell Falls some years ago. We met two Polish mates and wives who had bought two brand new Pajeros and vans to do this trip.
We asked how they were going as one does and were they enjoying the trip. Apparently not too good. They told us they had to tekscrew both the dashboards back on the vehicles as both had fallen on to their laps.
We asked them how much pressure were they running in their tyres. They asked what we ran. We were running agout 16 psi.
One bloke slipped into the other in Polish then said he told his mate they should let the tyres down. THEY WERE RUNNING THEIR TYRES AT 60psi!!!!!
