    Tire pressure help?

    Alright, whats the ordeal with tire pressure and your trails, should it be high, or low, in general for what the tire recommends on the side?
    Some sort of advice would be appreciated.

    Take the time to read through the "Tire pressure for all around XC riding? " thread, in this forum. Lots of opinion and experience.

    The short answer to your question is - it depends - some "recommended/minimum" pressures are realistic, some aren't. The main limiting factor for minimum pressure (using tubes) is pinch punctures.

    Read the tire pressure sticky at the top of the forum.
    mtbtires.com
    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
