Default Maximum safe tire pressure????

I have read some of the other threads but im looking for some more opinions. I have a 6 passenger ds with a 6 inch lift. I put rhox 22x10-10 dot tires on and have a terrible wobble. I had been running them around 8-12 psi. they appear to be out of round. the tires or website don't give a max operating pressure they just say not to exceed 36 psi when mounting. I increased to 25 psi today and rode 20 or so miles and there was a noticeable increase so I would like to try higher. how high do you think I can safely go????

did not say how old your tires are,, mine are same size,, says 7lb, on side wall. I run 5lb and might go to 4.. if you have a wobble and your rims and splidals are true,, TAKE THE TIRES BACK:::: I had a set of tires on my car, I did just that, they were called Vrubber, real cheap,,,anyway, if its tires,, start calling;;;;;;;;;;;;; good luck

they are probably about 2 years old but have been doing it since new. I read that higher pressure can help the issue and have read people running as much as 30 psi. the cart has had almost no use since I put them on. trying to get the issue fixed up now

If the cart has sat a long time,in one spot,it may have flat-spots in the tires.Park it in the sun,let the tires get good and warm,then go for a long drive,thats about the only way to cure that if its' the problem.Some tires are just poor-quality and not true-running,we see it all the time,especially with all the Chinese tires out there now.Roughly 1 of 3 Chinese tires we see on heavy trucks are egg-shaped from the factory.

It sat a while, the last several months it was on jacks. Maybe a ride in the hot part of the florida day would help?

Yep. And I'm sure you know this, but pressure being too high will result in the middle part of your tires being all that contact the ground, therefore wearing out first.

you have had them awhile, but;;;;;;if you explain they have done this since new. maybe they will help you, also it maters who you talk to, go straight to the top, you have rights'''. just tell them you really did not want to call on this, but the tires are bad. make sure you jack up the cart and spin each wheel, if the rims are perfect round, then I would deal with it, my cart is glass smooth, except on bumps, then I need to be careful, it runs around 25mph, and will hop;; let us know what happens. good luck

I do. I was just kind of hoping I might be able to get em a little more round and the. Maybe back the pressure off. I know its kind of a stretch

so far, a dramatic improvement at 25 psi. I lowered them to 15 today and it felt like I ws riding on square wheels
