Several of the comments are related to never running the tires above sidewall max, the max sidewall rating is supposed to be cold presure so I can't see any danger in the presure rising 5-10 psi on a tire that is running on 150*-200* asphalt in the summer. I'm running the the tires on my cars above max sidewall and I had an incident a few days ago where I had to make as sudden stop on wet roads and the traction was actually better than when I ran them at or below max. Very hard braking and never lost traction as apposed to breaking traction at or below posted sidewall. Maybe the tire engineer got blown up over inflating his tires. LOL
