Michelin Dynamic Tires

Hello;

I have been looking for some rather inexpensive tires for general riding (city and charity rides) but am now concerned about their low pressure rating (max. 87psi.). I'm about 210 lbs. and am used to tires with 100 psi. + ratings. The tire width is 28mm. Although not a high tech tire, the Michelin Dynamic's seem to get some respectability for cost and value. Any comments!

Bill

I haven't used those but I do use the Michelin City tires, I have 700X32c and run them at 60 in the front 70 in the rear and I weigh around 205.
The 700x28c's I have are Continental Touring Plus tires and I usually run those between 85 to 95.
I have gotten 2 flats on the Conti's (one was a 2 inch nail that got thrown up by the front into the rear tire, the other was a small sliver of glass) I haven't gotten any flats on the City's. I really do like the feel of the Michelin also compared to the Conti's. I ordered another set for my cruiser I am building back up, in 26" however.

For 28's you should be OK. Tires pressure decrease as tire width increases. As an example my 700x23 Dynamics have a 116psi rating.

Dynamics are the factory tire used by many bike companies - my Giant came with them. They are ok for a low-end tire. Ride quality is so-so, they seem to last ok but are not spectacular in any respect.
