    Tubeless Tire Pressure for big guy?

    I was just curious what the other 185 lbs folks out there are using for their tire pressure in tubeless tires...26" type.

    Depends on the tire, volume, terrain, casing, aversion to risk. I usually run 30 front 32 rear, can go down to 28, up to 35 depending on variables. I'm 208.

    Wow! Thanks for the response. I have been afraid to go below 35.

    I've done winter (wet, muddy) rides on my single speed, 29x2.35 Rampage tires at circa 22/24psi on Stans Flow rims. One good root hit and it's game over, but man they ride nice!

    22psi front, 25 psi rear.
    I'm 170, full suspension bike with Notubes rims, Kenda Nevegal/SB8 tires. Those pressures work well on "loose over hardpack" trails in Socal.

    175lb, mid pack-back of the pack Cat 1

    2.4 panarace Fire, 2.1 fire tubeless or 2.1 Panaracer Trail Rakers all around

    24/26 is what I run not even a burp in rocky western pa. I run ghetto rim strip which I feel seals up better than the stans system as it seals on the sides as well.

    160 lbs mid-pack Cat 1, stan's rims, 2.1 Crossmarks, I've found a new low this year running 19psi up front and 22-23 out back. It's awesome.

    I usually run between 28-32 but this past race was up to 35 since it was mostly dirt roads.

    I'm lighter though at around 165.
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    Thanks for the feedback. I will be hitting the trail this weekend in Breck and will be dialing in the air pressure then.
