Air pressure - problem if over inflate mtb tires?
I just put some Kenda 26x2.1 tires on my mtb, the knobbies were wearing out. These have tread, but smoother for the road.
On the side of the tire it says max pressure 40psi. That seems low to me, the tires I took off had a max of 65psi. I rode the bike with 42psi in them and they seemed ok, but just a touch mushy.
If I inflate to 50 or 60 (and the tire doesn't pop
) would this damage tire or make it wear out faster?
