does anyone know what type of air pressure should be on the 11.8 x 28 8n rear tires? what about the 4x19 fronts? these are new tires so i want to make sure but there is no indication on the tires other than the max used for seating them.
thanks

As far as I am concerned it all depends on how much weight you have on them. This veries by what you are pulling and what kind of angle your hitch has applied to it. Too much air and the rears don't have enough tread on the ground for good traction. Too little air and the wrinkle up in the middle and loose contact in the middle of the tire - traction loss again. Ride quality and how rough the ground is factors in too. Some people even use a tape measure and set pressure by getting their rim a given distance from the ground. Watch the tractor pullers - they set their tires according to the track they are pulling on. It is not a set thing like vehicles going down the road at 70 MPH. Won't build up heat from speed. Now the fronts - close to max pressure as it makes the steering easier.
