For those who have been following me for a while, you have probably noticed from time to time my knees aren’t the best. No use complaining but if there is something that can take a load off I will give it a go.
This is my favorite 4wd accessory for 2019 and I am super excited to have this system fitted to the mighty Canter.Jamie Hazelden
When I saw the new Tyre Spider, from Clearview, I was excited. The mighty Canter is running 37″ tyres so imagine being able to deflate all four at the same time while having a coffee. It is a no brainer for me.
The Clearview Tyre Spider makes the process of deflating and inflating your tyres simple. It also reduces the pressure on the knees, bending down at each tyre while managing tyre pressures.
The Canister works as an equalising tank; you can connect all four tyres up at the same time and deflate from a single point. To inflate the tyres, you simply reverse the procedure.
The kit comes with a sturdy storage bag, every detail has been carefully thought out, or you can mount the equipment permanently. In the Canter, I installed the tank permanently and ran air to it through the Sherpa 4×4 compressor.
You can also use the spider without a compressor as a deflating tool quickly drop all four tyre pressures at the same time or in an emergency borrow air from up to three tyres to pump up a flat.
You may want to run more pressure in the rear than in the front. Perhaps you have a heavy load in the tray or a big van on the back and need a bit more pressure in the rear.
With the isolating taps, you can stagger your tyre pressure to any combination to your setup.
