That absolutely never crossed my mind... now that you say it I am almost embarrassed that I never thought of that... Doh! Shhhhhh, that will always remain our little secret at this point because I already have her approval on the new tires


Coming from a 4-wheel & off road and mostly "straight line" background I always think in less pressure for more traction, totally never crossed my mind for more pressure for less roll... (though I still say the DWS06s are a softer sidewalled tire)

They do have softer side walls and it's a common complaint of conti DWS. I tried different pressure points, unless Upallnight is suggesting an unorthodox value, like 50, 60 psi.
