There has been a lot of discussion about tire width and pressure on a number of different forums. Twenty years ago I upped the pressure in narrow tires and they blew off just like the OP's did. Since that time I've been riding wider tires at lower pressures. Now my favorite tires are 650B x42mm Compass tires at between 40 and 45 psi. Eventually we find what works best for us.
