Best tire pressure for 30" Silverbacks?

I have noticed that a lot of people air up their tires a bunch on the bigger bikes. Is it better to pump up the tires more or keep them lower? I figured the grips may grab better if they are pumped up a lot. Also, what is the best psi to set them at?:th_smilieb anana2::th_smi liebanana2:

Whatever fits your needs. The mote air the taller and more gc you have but it's not a significant amount. The less air the more tread on the ground. I rode my 30s at 10psi but I think most run them at 7

x2 at 5psi..... but a lot of it does depend on your riding style and what type of riding you do most of the time...

Mainly ride in mud. I have had a problem with the tires gripping good. I set them at 20 psi earlier today and I am ready to go test them out. I believe that the tread will grab better and not flex as much. I have always been told lower pressure better grip but I am not sure of that with the Silverbacks

I run about 7.5 psi in mine. Always been a lower is better believer, but read several posts about beads unseating when ran lower than 7. Don't know if it's true or not. I haven't had any problems, just seems to ride rougher.

Is 20 PSI dangerous? I should be able to ride with that pressure correct? It sais psi over 35 can blow up and kill you on the tire pretty much lol

I have always believed lower is better for rockcrawling. Now in the mud more air would do better, I believe. Just be aware when the tires grip, the tire wont flex as much and may brake axles.
