    Tire pressure 700x35c studded Winter Riding???

    I picked up a set of winter studded tires for my 29er so I could keep riding this winter even on light snow with ice patches.

    Is there any advantages to running low pressure on skinny tires.
    I do understand too low could give me a snake bite in the tube.
    Tire side wall states 35 to 65psi.

    Thanks

    Which tires do you have?

    For their studded tires, Schwalbe recommends the minimum pressure for icy conditions to maximize stud contact and max pressure during better conditions to reduce noise and rolling resistance.

    Otherwise, adjust pressure for your weight and riding style as normal.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    There Schwalbe. They click quite a bit on pavement even at 65#
    Based on the amount of tire bulge I think I can go 40# rear and 30# front.
    This gives me an equal bulge with full tread contact.
    Does that sound like the right direction?
