There seems to be alot of very very knowledgeable guys on this forum, I was hopping one of you could tell me what tire pressures should work best for me. I have stock 525 with a JD jetting kit. Im planning on running the stock front tires for now since I only get to go dunning a couple of times a year. For paddles im running 22 inch ITP sand stars on 10X9 .125 dougles wheels. Where I ride is st. anthonys in idaho so its mostly hill climbing. I also weigh 232 pounds. Im a little afraid of bending my wheels but I also want a good grip. Any info you guys can give me would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks Robert

I am running ITP Sand Stars and Skat Traks I run from 5-7 psi...Drag Racing 5 psi....Duning and Jumping 6-7 psi...you'll probably spin the Sand Stars on the rim some, but not to worry mine does that all the time...the Sand Stars will be great for Hill Climbing...in the front I run 6-7 psi all the time just so they are a little firm for jumping...

The only time I have seen a .125 wheel fail was a guy on a 250R spanking some huge jumps at the dunes. It split from a lug all the way to the rim. But with that in mind, I don't know anyone else that runs a .125 wheel so I don't have much to compare too.

I have run them all from .125 to .160 to .190 and I have bent all three on the rear at different times and also bent one front .125 from hitting a root sticking out in the trail at the dunes...ride just like you always ride and inspect them frequently I think you'll find confidence in any of them I did...I am presently running .125's on my Polaris RZR 12X10 rims on the rear and 12X8 rims on the front and I am surprised at how well they are holding up, not even one bend/warp yet...the front .125 I bent severely and then took a Ball Peen hammer and bent it back../still runing it today as well as the other rims I have bent in the past...
