I was wondering what is a safe pressure to run 14-17.5 R14T's? The manual only shows the max pressure of 30psi but my neck and spine do not agree with that. I'm currently running them at 20psi but I'm wondering if 15psi would be acceptable or if that would be too low? The last thing I want is a filled tire coming off the bead.

I run my R14s at 12 psi... have been for several weeks. No problems except a better ride.

AS we all know - tractors do not come with shocks - the flex of the tire is the only shock we have for our bad backs!!!! So unless the tire "looks" flat - or you are hauling a heavy load on the 3 point - lower in this case to a point is better!!!!

You kind of answered your own question. Part of having tires filled with anything except the air they are designed for, results in a rougher ride.
