    Do I need to adjust my tire pressures for snow/ice now that I have the blade on it?

    Its a short wheelbase 1962 Land Rover with 235/65 16 that I run about 30 PSI.

    And when travelling on the road is it best to keep the blade fully raised or lower?

    Raise your psi. And your blade height, just enough so it don't scrape the ground

    Raise the pressure and I usually keep my blades fully up and angled.
