|LouisPK||I run my K270s much like mentioned, 32-34 in the front and +2 in the rear for pavement, 20 front 22-24ish off road. They do great on and off and I've gotten used to the spongy feel at speed on the highway. That took a little bit.|

They last longer, handle better and don't cup as much.
When I use the K270s I run them up in the 30s, reduce for off-road, air back up when done playing.

I'm not disagreeing with your numbers, but my bikes manual recommends 21 psi front, and rear. ( 28 psi rear with heavier load. )
Why do you recommend max pressure on the tires? What is the benefit to running max. pressure?

Agree, and you might look into running a couple psi higher in the front, per pdwestman's recommendation.

Your pressures are too low IMO.
For the Kenda 270 front Kenda recommends 32psi max. I always run at max on pavement and air down when I get onto the gravel.
That looks like a Duro Median. PSI for that from Duro is 36 front and rear.

I don't see any dot, (yellow or any other color).
I have a bunch of stick-on weights. Used them on my last tire, and seemed to balance ok.
This is what I'm replacing......
This wear pattern is uniform all the way around the tire. I get no wobble when I loosen grip on bars, and it rides smooth, except for a lot of singing from the cupping.
They were put on last July, and I have a little over 2,000 miles on them. The rear is also a Duro with over 4,000 miles, and shows hardly any wear on it.
I've been keeping my pressure at 21 psi, and upped that to 25 last month. Didn't seem to make much difference in it wearing down prematurely

|klr4evr||If it doesn't have a mark don't worry about it. Are you using balancing beads?|

If there is a yellow mark or stamp, that would indicate the lightest point and should be mounted by the valve.
My K270s have no mark, but they are pretty old and it could have come off. I don't remember if there was one when they were new.
My K761s have a yellow QC stamp, which I assumed was the lightest point.
