Are you running yours harder or softer?

Computer says 2psi less than where I'm at. With the old wheels I was happy where I was, the new are still in the experimental stage, I'll more than likely end up heading in that direction with them.

Interesting, is that because of the slop and the roots?

No matter what setting I use on that link I get tyres that are higher psi than mine..

Winter slop setup is not as far off as the rest of the year though, but still off.. :)

Interestingly i just re-did mine on there and it comes up lower on my rear than i use now, but i think thats mainly because of my side walls were flexing to much under stress in the berms, so i upped my pressure.
Like i said before though, its a guide and a good starting point.
