That's only applicable to the Michelin Pilot Race.

Ok, I am using Pilot Race Mediums for Willow Springs in a few weeks. 22 psi in the rear and 30 front? Is that what I am reading? Why not 28/28?!

28front/22rear - dont really know why tho but if you try 28/28 vs 28/22 - you'll feel the difference...

What if you're using medium race in front and regular power in rear?

30/22 is what I start with in TX for the cooler months. 28/22 summer. I believe the lower pressures keep the tires hotter and your contact patch in optimum shape. I also pay very close attention to pressures when hot, and prefer a 3-4 psi expantion. I have found from MY experience that is where I get the best feel from the tire. I would suggest you experiement for yourself and feel the confidence you get with the power race.

The sidewall of the power race is very stiff. Change the tires yourself and you'll find out. Hardest tire I've had to get over the rim.

I run 31 front 22-23 rear on the Power Race.

22 sounds really low. Can you tell a difference between 25 and 22 psi in the rear?
