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).

I'd run the 22 psi

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. :unknown:

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.

Thanks for your input, Yank! I used to autocross ... on slicks with lower pressure ... the stickier, the better. With my current sports cars, I use wider, lower profile tires with slightly less PSI than recommended for better handling. I'm sure you know what I mean. I'm just wondering whether the same applies to lawn tractors. Slightly lower PSI, better traction? I worry about traction on the hilly areas in my yard. I have about 1 acre and it can be pretty steep in some areas.

I tried that also, Mr. Bear. I don't use my iPhone for email - only my laptop, and none of the emails show up. Real bummer!

Edit: When I send an email of a pic. from my iPhone, it doesn't show up when I log into my email on my laptop.

I wondered who was sending me those emails with pics. Now I know.:mocking:

Seriously, sending from the phone to computer using email is the best and easiest way. If I have a bunch, then I hook them together via USB cable. Remember that you have to save the pic from the email to your computer before you can find it on your computer. Since I see you are using an iPhone, then you might be using a Mac computer. If so all bets are off. I have a friend who has both and it seems like at least once a week, she is making a trip to the Apple store to get something working again. I had to go to her place last week to fix her printer issues but I can't fix her Mac or iPhone issues, although I can fix pretty much any Android or Windows issues.

Haha! Actually, I have a Dell laptop and the Apple is my 1st smartphone, which I haven't had that long. I didn't have any problems syncing my iPod, but for some reason, I'm having lots of trouble with my iPhone - perhaps because of the iCloud backup crap. If that is something you can help me with, I'd truly appreciate it. :hi:

I do this with my iPad and iPhone along with my PC all the time.

Download iCloud for Windows and set it up. When I take a pic with my iPad or iPhone, and am within my home WiFi, the pic shows up in my PC within a minute. Of course you need to enable iCloud on your phone or tablet.
