Yep, tire pressure is on the tire. Are they full size tires or the little ones?

If you have any weight over, say, 500 lbs on that axle, a tire inflated to 50 psi will be one bumpy ride.

Remember that those tires are each rated at that amount.

I run mine at around 30 psi cold and it gives a much better ride than before.

I was always told that you want to run the tires at the psi that allows the entire tread with to make contact with the ground when it's under load.

I believe that figure would be the max weight at the max psi...
