A central tire inflation system for a work vehicle is presented. The central tire inflation system controls the inflation pressure in the tires of a work vehicle. The central tire inflation system may be placed in an automatic or manual mode. In the automatic mode, the system makes changes to the tire pressures according to the tire parameters, terrain conditions, and the operating loads placed on the tires.
