paint looks great!

One question though since I am an avid 4 wheel road racer, when our tires get "greasy" we usually check the temps across the tread with a pyrometer and the hot pressures. Most tires have an optimal hot temp - Hoosier R6's like about 38-42 psi hot. Michelin Cups like 33-35 hot. Hot tires mean its time to bleed off more pressure not inflate more. Is this contrary to what works on bikes?

It depends on the wear of the tire and out side temp on what you want in them.

so on a cold day where you're having cold tear then you must drop a lb or 2.

on a hot day you may keep more air inside the tires.

get it?

there are many thread and people here who will give us a lot of info.
actually there is a thread here.. let me find it.. BRB
