if you like the ride, stay on 75...

90 in the back, 75 in the front.

115 all around.

some ride 130 on rim jobs around here.

that is funny, because I recently won a rim job at a comp and decided to try it out, and the bead blew apart riding around 100psi.

being more full doesn't always mean better performance. If you are a lighter guy (120-150ish) you should ride whatever feels comfortable. You probably wouldn't need them that full. Running them rock solid just makes for a rough ride.

thats also kinda funny cause we had to trash one cause the bead was ripping yesterday.

I was taught years ago, that on a BMX bike the tire pressure should be !/2 your weight.
I weigh 220, so I run 110lbs on my street bike. can't find race tires that hold that much so I run 10 lbs over the max pressure of the tire I'm running. Right now Im using IRC Sirens.

Sirens are pretty good tires, I have one on the back, but they were kind of fast.

I hate those KHE tires. They are great if you ride park mainly but I mainly ride street and they are just too thin for it
