If something happens to you, you certainly won't be able to forge ahead with a lawsuit against continental... I would probably run them at a slightly lower pressure. You'll also want to make sure that the braking surface of the rim is still pretty substantial. I've run some modern tires at about 100psi on my weinmann concaves with no problems.
