    No but I would be starting around 20 psi and watching from there.
    It is a “ soft roader” but it has central diff lock which may help.

    The issue with tyre pressure has to do with avoiding damaging the tyres.

    If you take the Hyundai would you consider changing tyres? If you run 18" there is a good range of AT tyres. Also are there aftermarket shocks available, worth a thought.
    On dirt roads I run 26 drive for an hour and let them back down to 26.

    Regards

    Yes, good question, does the Hyundai have highway tyres or AT LTs?

    You know, my now very elderly parents used to drive their HR and HD Holdens on our roads that were in much worse condition than what I've seen of the main tracks through SA. And my friends who had a large property out past Broken Hill had Falcons for the trip on the dirt roads into town. Unless the corrugations are awful I would've thought that the Hyundai would be fine.

    Hi,
    We were often overtaken by hippys in bongo vans.
    Cheers

    Kombi vans, I have seen, often when they overheated and were stranded on the roadside.
