Tire Problem

I have a little predicament. I bought some slick tires for my mountain bike that I am about to use to bike across Wisconsin on Friday. I coulda swore that they were rated to 100 psi when I bought them, but it turns out they are only 60.
My front one seemed fine, but with the extra weight in my panniers and my weight on the back, the tire seemed about half inflated at 60 psi. Should I try going to 80 or should I just buy a tire that is rated to go higher?
