For those who use a plow or a snow pusher on a LX2610 sized tractor in the winter, what tire pressures do you run front and rear? Looking to maximize traction and steering while maintaining appropriate pressures for the weight of the loader/plow and ~500lbs of rear ballast.

I have an L2501. I don’t change my pressure depending on the season. Maybe I could, but I run chains on my R4s.

I don't run chains and have R14's. I ran the recommend (max) pressure last year and was good for the most part but just wondering if airing down a bit would improve both traction and steering.
