    My Continental "Town & Country" tyre says "inflate 35-65 psi".

    I have been advised to inflate it to 60 for use with a 7/8" Staton roller.

    Is this correct?

    At what pressure will an inner tube blow?

    That sounds about right. I run the tires that say "Inflate to 65 lbs." at 60. Never a problem.

    I would run the tires at what Staton suggests, afterall, they designed the thing.
