    Specialized Armadillos 26" X 1.95" - Safe To Overinflate?

    They feel a little soft and I was wondering how much can I get away with over inflating 'em?

    what's the MAX pressure? often 26" tires, even at their max have some give to them. you can go to a narrower higher pressure tire

    I have gone to 10 to 15 psi over on 65 & 80 psi tires.The bigger the tire the less you can get away with.On the lower PSI tires I don`t think I would try it like the 35 PSI Beach Cruser tires.Notice I did`t say safe I said got away with.Just took off a 26x1.95 I had run about a year at 75 PSI that was a 65 PSI tire.
