Hello. I would like to know if its good idea to increase my tire pressure of Maxxis Bighorn tire with reason of my driving style.
I drive my atv mostly on roads, gravels with 40+ mp/h speed.

Currently I am using 5 PSI (Polaris spec) but I kinda feel that I am tortuting my vehicle :D

Do you think something like 10-14 PSI would be good and safe?

My ATV is sportsman 570

that sounds a little high. it might work though. I would bump it up to 7psi and see how it reacts.

I run 6 psi in my 27.5" Pit Bulls most of the time and occasionally hit 70+ mph on a few of the stretches of road I have to travel. Any other time I'm on the road I generally cruise at around 50-55 to stay with traffic. My 1000 with a full load of me, camping gear, cooler, Rotopax of fuel and a chainsaw probably outweighs your 570 considerably. I haven't noticed my tires being "tortured" in any way LOL??
You put 10-14 psi in them and go riding and YOU will be the one tortured! :oops: :eek:
