Depends on the weight of the car and how accurate the pressure gauge is. Try 10.5psi and go up/down from there.

Most guys (including me) run them on a 14" wide rim. It helps keep the footprint as wide as possible when the tire grows. Some guys use as wide as a 16" rim. Take a look at this pic from top end. This is a 14" rim. I wouldn't want to go any less than 14" wide or the tire tread might get too narrow at speed.

Glad to help out. It's been a couple of years since we ran at Ubly. I think I still had my old car the last time I ran there?
