New Michelin Power Pure Tire Pressure

I just picked up a new Power Pure for the front of the rc sp2.....I read in the manual to run 36 f and 42 r cold. Before I ran 32 f and 36 r cold. It seems to feel a little heavy in the front though. What does everyone recommend to run on this new tire. It is supposed to be the lightest dual band tire ever made. And it def is very light. I picked it up against some other tires when I bought it and it was super super light. I love the tire though, nice grip, good ride. I would def recommend it. I just would like a little insight on what pressure to run. Btw I run a dunlop GP-A rear.

Never mix tires....

Replace that rear immediately with a Pure.

if on the track i run 29-31 front and 28-30 rear. (lower in the wet or when really hot weather). on the street i'd stick to 34-36 front, and same in the rear if solo, and 38-40 if two up.

because of the structure of the tire, it allows more flex, and better feel, but sacrifices rigidity, a few lbs of air pressure give you back the rigidity with not too much penalty in the feel and ride quality.
