Whatever feels best... probably a good plan to stay inside the limits that the tire says. I run about 60psi in my HolyRollers, they list between 45 and 60 I think.

From my experience, tires can go quite a bit over what it says on the sidewall.

The problem is usually in the rim, although this is merely my experience.

Tire pressure should depend on your
A) What your ride
B) Whatever feels good...


If you ride Street and skateparks mostly, then you should run your tires hight in the PSI department, like 80-115PSI...
And as for Trails and Dirt try lower PSI for the wetter the dirt/jumps
When my trails are wetter then normal i usually deflate my normal 80ish PSI to maybe a 60ish...(im guessing) but you should get the point...

What tires do you have queensrider? I wouldn't mind getting some that go up higher than 60, even if they werent as good for dirt.

federal front. not the best for sliders, but i like it, so i'll keep it till it's bald.
i have a revenge for the rear. pretty good. If tioga had that kevlar construction, it would probably be the best
