    I run 10 PSI in the rear tires on my ZTR. I mow cool season turf at 2.5-3.0" early spring, 3.0-3.5" late spring through fall, drop it down to 2.5-3.0" for last few cuts. A higher cut will stripe better, help choke out weeds, and be more drought tolerant, some of my customers want mowed at 4.0".

    Depends on your location. Here in the South we cut high.
