How much air pressure are you guys/gals running in your drive tires? I'm running a Walker MT-54 and am running 20lbs. in them. Would you get more traction with more or less than that? Thanks for your input.

I run 8 lbs. in the back of my Choppers, 10 is the maximum they recommend and you can go as low as 6 lbs. Usually the lower the pressure, the more traction you have and the better the ride too. I run 20 in the front tires.

I'm doing 13 and 13 both front and rear. No problems yet.

Ten in the rears on my Lazer Z and 15 in the front, which are foam filled. In all truth I'm tempted to try going to a little taller tire and dropping the pressure until I get the same rolling radius as I've got now. Might improve the ride a little. As a rule traction will improve as pressure drops, although I think that side hill traction might suffer.

On my Grasshopper G1 I run 8lbs in drive tires and 18lbs in the rears. On my G2 I run 11 lbs in the drive tires and 18lbs in the rears. The front deck tires are foam filled.
