But, the tires ride well and hang onto the corners and there are no signs of them cupping. Buy quality car tires keep them properly inflated and that should be the least of your worries. Enjoy the ride. Bladder pressure ranks higher than tire pressure if you know what I mean. LOL

    So do mine - and so should EVERYONE's!

    Part of the reason for starting your front tire pressures out at a close to equal 'cold start' pressure is so that they will remain fairly close to each other in pressure once the tires have warmed up to their optimal operating temp (which should see an increase of about 4psi after an hour's ride ) and then vary a little as you ride/drive on, simply because they DO heat up & cool down continuously in response to the changing conditions & demands placed upon them.... But once they've done that initial 'warm up', any ongoing pressure changes should be 'fairly slight' or even 'minor', so that they remain reasonably close to their initially achieved 'optimal operating temp'!

    I use the same pressure gauge that Iíve used for 15 years and it works just great. 18 in the front 28 in the rear. Works out perfect for me.

    That's what I ended up ordering, but with more accessories and smaller range of the guage.

    see below: digital works best for me Also having the quietest air compressor is a joy!

    I notice that most digital gauges mounted as part of an inflator have ranges of 0-200 psi or so. Are digital gauges more linear across their range than analog dial gauges?
