flat tire and tire pressure for jd 440
« on: October 28, 2018, 12:29:10 PM »
got a flat on my jd 440 .  I tried putting a pump on it how ever it would pump to 45 psi and then shut off.   I thought these tires would not need this much pressure.  is perhaps the valve faulty ?   any suggestions would be nice.

I use 30psi because my tires are very old. I have heard that people use 35psi in newer tires

I used to run 25psi because it rode a lot better but I had several flats because of it. The tire place said to run 40 but I ended up going with 35 and it seems to be working ok
