Souldn't you let out a little air when off roading. 36 PSI just sounds like a bit to much.

i run 30 unless i'm going to a trail or park that i'll be at all day or weekend then i'll air down lol

its a pain in the *** if you dont have a cool little tire deflater doomajobie.
especially from 36lbs thats a few more minutes you have to stay squatted down per tire, then you gotta go pay and wait for ever to fill em back up yada yada yada

airing down is not really worth it unless you just plan on offroading all day. I also don't air down when I am driving around in those thorns.

I know people that run airplane tires with 100 -120 psi so they don't get punctured.
