Back when I had a set of 26" Executioners I ran around 3psi in them for normal just easing around trail riding...If I was setting out to play hard,and in deep mud,I'd bump them up to as much as 9 psi,then air them back down again before loading up onto the trailers...I would never tell anyone to run that high a pressure,but it kept me from blowing beads,and gave me an extra 1/2"-3/4" or so clearance at my skid plates...

5psi tends to be an average with most riders, with most wheels. However, you can adjust it a little bit (up or down) depending on the riding you do and the terrain you are on.

Well I'm running 6 psi in them and they seem to be doing good so think that might be the number

In most cases it would depend on the terrain. In my region it's hard pack and stiffer tires make it easier to steer and the tires tend to last longer at higher psi levels. In winter i bring down the pressure so that more of the tire contacts the ground for more traction. I also don't like hauling a trailer full of firewood with soft tires ,but softer tires give a smoother ride.

Simply adjust your tire pressure for your situation.

I found that the original rancher 420 Maxxis tires ran best on gravel roads at 8psi. Anything below 6psi made the machine sluggish. Therefore 7psi was the trade off.

It should also be considered that i am not a lite person and i am carrying a cargo box with a chainsaw, getting un-stuck tools, an axe, and some geologist tools at all times.
