What PSI are You Running in Your Walk Behind

Just wondering what kind of tire pressure you guys are running in your walk behinds. I aired them to the recommended specs on the tire, it worked fine. I then when a little over and it seemed to handle much better. I then went a little under and seen the nimbleness went down but the traction went up. Can I also use my tires to get the rear of the deck 1/4 higher than the front? My HD45 doesn't have a minute mechanism to raise or the lower the back of the deck in a small increment. I can raise the back 1/2 inch through the deck positioning system but I think I seen one of you guys say that was too far.

That's the recommended on the tires I have, Carlisle brand. I went to 15 and down to 10, I think 12 is the best, lol manufacturers recommendation. These guys do it for a living for a reason I guess.

I check my tire pressure with a push from my boot, after a bunch of years my toe is pretty accurate.

Too hard to remember with everything in all I got north of 30 tires...

So all my tires are inflated to Max. PSI sidewall.

That way I don't have to remember, just go by what it tells me on the sidewall of the tire.
Whatever recommended max. pressure it tells me, that's what I put in it.

Funny, I stand on them, and depending on the firmness I can tell.
