Anywhere really, just look for how accurate it is. You will want the ones that are within 1%. Should cost about $5 atleast.

What are you running?

I run 36 in the front and 34 in the rear for street and on average for the track it is 31 front 29 rear. Although I will drop it by a pound for cold track days. All this is coming from my tire rep. So possibly everyone should check with their tire guy when having them mounted.

regarless if you are running track or street and you are changing your tire pressure to fit the weather....would you want more psi in the cold or heat. The hotter your tire gets, the more it expands..right or no...now how long do your tires usauly last? I get at least 5k on my rear, 10k on front (just commuting for work mainly)

A hotter tire gets more traction until it gets too greasy or blows out due to excessive heat causing tire separation. Colder streets means less traction so lower the air pressure to increase traction to compensate for cold asphault and the raise tire pressure some for the summer time to reduce excessive heat.

On average you are looking for 4 pounds of growth and your milage question is going to depend on the type of tires. Again, the best person to ask about tire pressure is the guy who sold you the tires. Everything I have posted is on average and is obviously geared to what I choose to ride on.

I do not deviate from the 36/34 for street riding regardless of the weather. I just check to make sure that is what they are set at before I leave the house.

The track is a different animal.

You can stabilize that deviance by running nitrogen. No moisture conent to absort a lot of heat.
