    Default BX24 tires??

    Hi guys,

    Maybe you guys can help me.....What I was wondering is, if my BX24 came with the wrong tires???

    Ok, here goes.....My right front was a little low, so I looked on page 50 of my owners manual for the proper inflation numbers.....Here is what it tells me:

    Turfs
    Front:
    without/loader 22.0 psi
    loader 25.4 psi

    Rear:
    without/loader 20.0 psi
    loader 20.0 psi

    So my question is, am I really supposed to put 25.4 psi in my front tires when my loader is on?? (which it always is).....The tire itself says 22 psi MAX inflation it......Do they have different tires that should come with a FEL equipped BX??

    Thanks....

    I would not exceed the rated pressure on the tire itself. The number rated in the book may be for the R4 or AG tires.

    Yeah I did not exceed the rating....The book has tires pressures listed for the fronts based on Turf/Bar/Ind...

    All three tire types show the same front tire pressure settings in teh book for front tires with loader at 25.4 psi. Can anyone else with a BX24 confirm their tires also say 22psi Max? It just seems weird to me...

    Thanks...

    To enhance the ride and traction I've run them as low as 10 lbs on the rear and not much more on the fronts depending on the loads being carried.

    Why run them at 40psi? Do you run them that way for loader work. Seems really high.
