Ok...I said I was running my Kuhmo at 36psi....this weekend I am going to drop it to 32psi to see (feel) the difference...But I have a Question....

Q: At what point does one have to worry about too little pressure that the tire rolls off the rim...breaks the bead...? (I know it is a run flat tire...and that may not be capable of happening...I just don't know...:shrug:)

I live on a farm and have had many farm tractors roll a tire off a rim due to low pressure...don't want that to happen on a bike...Thoughts...?

I rode my Kumho at 0 psi just to feel what it was like. It did not roll the bead off the wheel.

I think you will be safe at any pressure over 1 psi, which is what we breathe.

I have run a non run flat that was down to 10psi hot, and didn't have a problem. You should have nothing to worry about!:thumbup:
