As mentioned I do appreciate your service. BUT....there has to room in your mind for some common sense.
I always kept my dually tires at factory recommendations. They didn't wear out early.
Nobody would respect my postings if I got wishy-washy with them. Maybe you can find someone else to ask about borderline procedures.
There is really no common excuse to "air down" tires for a better ride. The vehicle manufacturer has set their recommendations appropriately. To air them down is to subtract from the safety margin provided with the vehicle manufacturers recommendations mandated by NHTSA.
