Most michelins are kind of pressure sensitive. Kinda gotta find the sweet spot. And it could change with ambient temp. But so far I really like these new pp3's. josh might be able to give you a little more insight. But hopefully I'll have time this week end to really beat on them and play with tire pressure.

Ask your sales manager to give them free of charge to you. You bought the bike from the same dealer you work for, right?

yeah i'm not knocking Q2's as a tire. it's just the ones that were on the bike made me uneasy. they had lost traction on me one too many times. now if it's from bluing or hardening idk.

yeah they seem to be a good rain tire as well, the pures were awesome so these should be good.
