For those using Kenda 270's

Just replaced my stock tires with 270's,rear was shot at 2115 miles.Will be riding on pavement quit a bit and was wondering about tire pressure to minimize wear.Put 30 lbs front and rear to start and am satisfied with the handeling.What are you using for pressure on the hard roads?

Look on the side of the tire for max pressure. Go 3 psi under that figure, COLD.
Or you could find a website for the Kenda's and ask the manufacturer. That's what I do. YMMV.
