    Best tire pressure?

    My tires has a 120psi max. What pressures should I run to still have good grip while cornering? 110, 100, 120? thanks

    There are two other threads on the page discussing this exact topic.

    A: Less than 120, in all likelihood. Cornering would be aided by lesser pressure, in any case, but the final answer will depend on your weight, tires you are running, and your road surface conditions.

    The lowest pressure you can get away with without getting pinch flats.
