    I could be wrong but I think you aim for 28ish hot? So get them up to temperature, come in and let pressure out

    You'll be in the lower range then, so 28-30 hot.

    They're not as stiff as say R888 which have an 86 load rating which is 55kg more load per tyre, so the extra pressure is needed to keep the sidewall up.
