    Tire PSI

    Please forgive me if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it in a search.

    As some of you know, I just installed Jethro's new rear tire/wheel assemblies. The recommended PSI is 22. When I checked with my tire gauge, they registered 19 PSI. I usually keep the PSI lower on my sports cars for better traction. What do you recommend for my new tractor tires? Should I add more air? I only drive him on grass with some hilly slopes ... and sometimes on the sidewalk and street, but not for very long distances (less than 100 yards).

    So sorry! I'd love to add my details to my signature and an avatar pic., but don't see anywhere to do it. Jethro is an L118. He has 20x10-8 on the rear, which has a recommended 22 PSI.

    There is no real reason to run at anything other than the recommended PSI on a lawn mower. There are no advantages to running at any other pressure but a few disadvantages to running either to high or to low.

    I run 10 pounds in the rear tires of my X580. Softer ride, much better grip. I think 14 or 15 in fronts. Can’t remember. It’s a lawn mower, not a weight bearing tractor. I never had a problem running low pressures on mine.

    Thanks, Keith and Stan! I got my signature added. Now if I can only figure out how to get the pix from my iPhone to my laptop. I can transfer pix from my laptop to my iPhone, but can't find any pix on my iPhone when I sync to my laptop.

    You can email the picture to yourself and post it that way......from one device to the other. That's how I have always gotten my phone pictures to my computer and I don't use my phone for GTT or any internet stuff, I don't like the way GTT appears on the phone verses laptop or other computer.
