Correct Tyre Tire Pressure for Road Use


My friends have mountain bikes and would like to ride the streets, we cannot buy road bikes or even change tires. We would like to know what is the best general correct tire pressure for our mountain tires to ride fast on the streets? Is 60 or 80 PSI, good, or can we increase it? or......

We already are explaining to lockout the susponssion or tighten up the suspenssion and making the rebound to fast!

I appreciate your help!

Look at the lettering embossed or printed on the sidewall of the tire(s). It will state rhe maximum tire pressure (psi/bar) recommended. I would suggest that you not exceed that pressure.
