    Hey guys,

    What amount of psi do you recommend in the rear wheels of a Toro 36" WB? Max pressure is 28psi and I usually have around 20psi but was wondering what you guys keep in yours.

    Thanks!

    Ditto...I get a better looking cut with the lower psi.

    How does a lower psi give you a better looking cut? Just curious!

    I believe there is not as much direct impact on the lawn under the tires, leaving less of a rut and more of just rollover.

    The lower the better. Rides sooooo much smoother. 10-12lb.
