Does it take more or less horsepower to go up a hill with your bike's tires under inflated or overinflated?

Over inflated rolls easier but the tire's effective diameter is increased, decreasing the over alll gearing. Under inflated rolls a bit harder but decreases the working diameter of the tire and increases the effective gear ratio.

To help with the hills, put on a smaller front wheel. ;)

If a tire is down to wear indicators, will it turn faster than a new tire?
