How to tell if your tires are "properly" inflated

I was heading to my car to leave and glanced down and noticed I could see _under_ the tire. The tire contacting the curb was only about 1/2" wide. 50psi

I run 50 PSI in 35 PSI tires... Still don't have problems.

There is a thread somewhere on here for the debate about tire pressures though.

Very dangerous to inflate them that much over the recommended psi.

If you feel it is dangerous don't do it! The rest can assess their own risk with intelligent analysis.
I do it.
