For Highway miles? Commuting? Race track? Canyon racing?

The best bet is start with your manufacturer specs, going lower for more traction and higher for more mileage...your results of course will vary. Give us some more specifics and i am certain you will get a wide response...

Tire Pressure?

My guess... 34-37 weekdays, 28-32 weekends.

I had the bt0s once and didn't like them when they got some miles on them. I ran around the weekday pressure in them since I was going back and forth to school a lot. But I recommend checking on what Bridgestone recommends.

Ditto. My street / commuting pressures are 36-39, sporty highway miles depending on temps 30-32...

Hey Brandon, I believe your tires are BT016s, it might make a difference on pressure due to the type of compound, welcome to Arkriders :ok .

I use Dunlop Q2s and run 30-31 daily. My weight is 145 without gear. If I am on the track using Dunlop D211s, I run 23-24 rear and 28-29 front. I have zero issues running my tire pressures providing sag is properly set. Scott
