I would put 8 to 10 psi. But that's just me and my idea. Everybody is different.

Depends on how many plies the tires are. 2 ply won't take as much as a 4 ply.
That, and the application needs to be considered. Is there a tiller hanging off the back? Loader on the front? The guy who made the tires don't know that. Just because a tire says that it can take so many pounds doesn't mean you gotta run it.
Take 2 plys off and replace with 4 plys the machine still weighs the same as it did with the old 2 plys on there.

since this is in the pulling forum, I would say it depends on what kind of track, track condition, type of sled, weight of sled, tractor HP, weight and class.... so just take a guess and go from there. Find a club having a test and tune and make a few pulls and adjust the pressure and see what it does. Every track will be a little different, so take notes.

   I would think for pulling you would want as little as possible and still maintain tire shape, give yourself as much traction as possible.  but I have never pulled so I don't know.  tater is right, find a club and give it a try

If ya go below 6 psi. It has the possibly to spin the wheel, while the tire stays still. Breaking the bead.
Must be a 6 ply tire with those ratings. I'm only guessin.
