  1. Run Flat Pressure Questions

    Darkside Riders
    So, finally picked up my bike with a new Yokohama Avid ENVigor ZPS tire, but it is RAINING hard and supposed to rain all weekend. As I get used to the tire, what should I expect at the various tire pressures? I rode 1/2 hour home from the dealer at 36 psi, so I have that as my starting point...
