Tire Pressure

Recommended Posts

My Honda manual says to run 4.5 psi front and rear. That seemed kinda low so I took it down to about 6 psi and was afraid to take it any lower. At 6 psi they looked like they could fall off the rim. Is 4.5 psi correct for general off road riding and if so should I adjust as soon as possible? Right now I'm running 10 psi front and back? Is that too much? Thanks.:biggrin:

Yeah I believe that's a bit too much. Usually 3-4 psi on the trails...u don't want to puncture a tire. I would stick with the manufacturer suggested 4.5

I know from experience about putting more air then they say. I ran 10 as well and I got sooo many punctures and I couldnt figure out why. Finally I did. :D

With my outlaw 29.5 im only running about 4psi all around. Rides alot smoother, and handles the mud and water alot better.

      I have a 2007 Honda Recon ES and need some new tires. The stock tire sizes are 22x10-9 and 22x7-11. I'm looking at some Carlisle AT489 tires but the closest sizes i can find are 22x10-10 and 22x7-12. Will they fit? Thanks.

      I have a quad (Can-Am) that takes 25 inch tires, just got a set of rims with tires that are 26's, not a whole bunch taller, don't see any problems using them? My main question, just in case I want to swap the tires in the rims, is on the rear tires.
      My original tires are 25/11/12 the replacement rims, the tires are 26/10/12. If the rims have the 26/10's now, will it work with the 25/11 tires? They appear to be the same width, are they? How can I tell what will work on the rim.
      Inside the rim, it is stamped 12/7.5 ET:+51

      I bought some stock wheels and tire that came off a Honda Foreman i believe. My problem is the rear rubbs my exhaust.
      Should I just put in a spacer and move the whole thing out an inch or two? Or should I buy 2 new wheels that have the correct backing?
      I have a 96 Fourtrax 300. the wheels that were on it are 9X9.0AT the new ones are 11X7.5AT.
