Metzeler site says DO NOT go over 45PSI. Your just talking to lawyers at Metzler  Think about it, you ride around on the road at that pressure hit'n pot hole and such, they wouldn't suggest you do that at the ragged edge of blowing off the rim!


 My mate (who was a lorry tyre fitter) says +50% on 42 which is 60-65 ish. I think that is reasonable and anything higher a cage or be standing on the other side of the wall.


The old front tyre is laughing at me I swear  >:( Do you feel lucky, punk? Do ya?  :uhoh2:

An update - the front one......  :uhoh2:

The front one is skinner that the back and is consequently even stiffer. Rim has been thoroughly cleaned and polished internally.

1. 60 PSI, jell and bumpy road. This did the back tyre. Nope.
2. 80 PSI and more jell. Then bounced. Nope. This was done by remotely operating the pump before I was satisfied it wasn't going to go pop!
3. Local bike shop, big compressor and air tank - 95PSI and some really slippery tyre soap he keeps for such occasions. FOC, because he knows i'll be back for MOT again.
