Just wanting to get an idea of what tire pressure everyone is running in their quads? Our terrain around here is hard packed dirt & rocks. I've been running about 5 psi. I'm thinking of dropping to 4 psi & maybe get a smoother ride. Any input??

6 front
5 rear

Alot also depends on the tire and loaded weight. My MUCATS are 6ply bias and are pretty stiff, & I carry ALOT of gear not to mention my big butt.

I drop the PSI in the winter for plowing snow.

Just so we're clear.......I DO NOT have an Arctic Cat ATV Addiction..........wellll...YES...yes I do.....

2013 700H1 TRV XT (Mine!!) - 485mls
2009 550H1 EFI (GF's) - 1120mls
2008 650H1 TRV (gone...but not forgotten) - 2250mls
2009 250Utility 4x2 (was great!! till "The Boy" outgrew it) - 480mls
