What tire pressure for my ATV tires?
I found catalog for my front tires, which says 4 - 5 PSI. (I'm not sure if I have A or B tire). Anyway,4 - 5 PSI seems a suspiciously little to me. :huh:


For my rear tires I can't find anything (it's Far East 22x10x10). Tires itself say something along the lines "Pressure according to manual. Don't exceed 36 PSI when seating the bead". Which doesn't help either.


So, how many PSI would you choose for the front and how many PSI for the rear? :huh: :huh: :huh:

For the most part it should say exactly on the tire sidewall itself... and all other relevant information...DOT ect...

I run 3-5 psi in all my atv tires, it could take 20-25psi or more just to seat the bead though a little soapy water works wonders.... Atv tires don’t take much pressure.
If your going to attemp to mount them don’t exceed max pressure to seat the bead if u used a little soap like dawn with water let the tires sit a while the bead will pop on when u least expect it (like 2am)

4-7 psi is pretty typical for an ATV.

My kinda scorpions say 5psi max on the sidewall. Pretty normal

The PSI indicated on the sidewall is MAX, not suggested. The suggested pressure is determined by the manufacturer of the machine you are running the tire on. 5psi is pretty normal for an atv. Install them and set the pressure where you like it.

Sometimes i run 3 on my quad, sometimes i run 10. depends on the conditions.

I take it the low pressure is so the tires don't pop over rough terrain?

Nope, it's for a wide footprint, driver comfort and less bouncy in rough terrain. But mostly to conform easier to obstacles instead of having them puncture the tires.
