Not at all. My way changes as I learn. I am
pretty sure there is great value in studying the databooks and fundamental mechanics, and only then considering tribal knowledge.
Let's lighten up and have some fun. Are you running the standard 199-102 Cleveland wheel and brake kit on a -3 through -9? Most are, so consider this puzzle...
The technically correct
maximum inflation pressure for the 199-102 kit is 31 psi
per Cleveland drawing 50-76.
The maximum inflation pressure for a 199-156 kit is 50 psi
, again per Cleveland 50-76.
The two kits use the exact same wheel halves, bearings, bolts, etc. The only difference between the kits is the brake disk....so why the difference in inflation pressure?

Should these run at the same pressure as the standard tire (tyre

Paul, please look up the rated pressure and weight capacity in one of the databooks previously linked.
