Usually the maximum pressure is embossed on the tyre sidewall.  Tractor tyres are usually around 15psi, but I don't know about small ones
Being certain just means you haven't got all the facts

Rear tyres are usually 12-15 psi, front tyres without a loader 20-30 psi and with a loader up to 40 psi depending on the type and ply rating of the tyre. It also depends on the amount of road work and the loads carried
