Start with the maximum listed on the tire.

And please fill in your profile so we know where you are and what you ride.

Thank You.

I run low 40ís all around. Like Dennis said, start high and bleed down until you find the sweet spot.

If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.

Give small cars only run 32 psi I would think 40 is high for a lightly loaded sidecar tyre.
I guess it would also depend on the softness of sidecar suspension. I have only done short runs in my outfit but about to ride across Australia and will be starting off with a new sidecar tyre at 32 psi. Maybe the US roads are a lot smoother than Australian roads.

what did you settle for Markos?
