Since you asked.

I run 10-ply (Series E), 12 months the year.  45-psi.  I don't air down, even in hard rock (but I don't drive the Quilomene, either).  I learned my lessons years ago with the abysmal quality of rock that the Idaho Dept of Lands pays for on their forest roads (hint: 1" rock would be small, usually much bigger).  My truck is light, so I don't need to air up any higher than 45.  The key is the tire quality.

On washboard roads I bounce and dance all day long, this is a known problem.  I accept it.
Si vis pacem, para bellum
