tire questions

1.)when you get new tires for a BMX bike and you jump alot should and you dont have a front brake should you put a little bigger of a tire on because it is your only i guess you could callit "shock" or have it the same as the front
2.) does guys inflate your tire to the maxium the minium or somewhere in between

thanks for any help

i am not into jumping much, but i usally run a lot of pressure in my tires. i run 100psi or more. i ride mainly street so thats why.

as far as your front tire being bigger... i would say you run it bigger to get more traction. thats about only thing i can think of. its up to you on the size. just my two cents.
