    high pressure is more for ramp riders than anything, I wouldnt go as far to say that you need 160 psi just because you can but tires that will take it..... I would recommend around 60-90 for regular street riding, 90 being about the roughest I would be able to stand myself.....

    and no, the leaking was not likely to be a direct result of the air pressure, but if you don't have tires that are going to take that kind of pressure you could have caused the problem there.....or you could have had a cut in your ire from some glass, and the increase in pressure caused the thread in the tire to slice the tube.....who knows...

    bottom line, if your tires are designed to take the pressure there's no problem there, and the only downfall to the extra thick tubes is added weight.....
