Hi guys - I have inflated my tires on my 2014 to 30-31. I went out for a ride today and the pressure on all tires rose slowly to 35. It's about 85 here today. Is 35 going to cause me problems and if so, should I let air out back to 30?? Appreciate advice - Thanks much - Later, JPC

You will be ok, it's normal. Keep in in mind that 10*F equals about 1lb air pressure, up or down, which is why you should always set tire pressures when the tires are cold. As you drive the tire temp's will increase and so will the air pressure. Up or down 1-2 psi from factory recommendations will be fine.

Thanks much LLC5. I get a bit cautious with these low profile skins. Appreciate your advice - Later, JPC
