 R4 tire pressure grand L's?

I have turfs so my pressures aren't what is asked. I believe that the rear pressures are very low for most R4's. I've heard of radial R4's but most have stiff side walls and low pressures can cause the beads to break off the rims, which really isn't good if they're tubeless.

There are some downsides to running excessively high front pressures. Most tires have load tables and I'd estimate the load and use the pressures indicated.

Tires should have a full foot print when static with load. You are about right with what you have done but could improve your ride by lowering your front pressure.

Just be careful with the pressure. I didn't keep check on my pressures when winter came and the fronts were low. The front tire broke loose from the wheel. The stiff side walls contributed as well but luckily when I noticed it, I wasn't going very fast. It could have messed the tire and or rim up.

Always learning something around here. The minimum pressure for my old turfs listed on their load chart is 12 lbs. I had heard the minimums for R4's were higher. I imagine that tires must have changed if 7 lbs. in the rears is OK for R4's. Never-the-less there should be a load chart for the tires and I wouldn't run pressures below minimum listed on the chart.
