Tire pressure, how much...Mudlite's

I have 26" mudlites on my 650I and I feel like the tires are to hard. Is it the mud type tire or air pressure. How much pressure is everyone running?

Thanks Jason

I've got the mudlite xtr max is 7psi "i beleave" and I run 5psi in the front and rear. My buddy has the mudlite XL's and runs 6psi in the front and rear. Its kinda a trial and error thing as to what you like, just don't go to low or you can de-bead the tire when its in a bind or push stuff between the rim and tire bead which would cause a slow leak.

Wow I have been running 10psi. Guess that's my problem I thought these tires needed more air. Thanks for the replies. I'm gonna try 6psi that should make a big difference. Jason

WOW!! 10psi!! I don't think there is any quad tire I've heard of that needed that much! I would only run like a max of 5 maybe 6! Imo.

Well I checked mine again with a diff tire gauge and they all read 8psi, still to high. Aired down to 5psi. This should improve the stiffness of the ride. I had 5psi in the factory tires and they felt to spongy. I realize the mudlite's are a 6ply tire and have a stiffer feel. Would still put these same tires back on again though. Maybe 27's next time. Thanks for the replies...Jason
