This is one of those questions that can be answered with "How long is a piece of string". Dependent on how well your little one is going, I'd be looking at going around 28psi and then going up and down dependent on the wear on the tyres. Obviously if it's biblically cold or wet, then you're going to need to go up a bit....

Is there an optimum running pressure for these tryes?

Coming from car racing my race tyres performe best at 21psi - therefore depending on weather and track conditions I set them usually between 16-19psi with some tyre warm up on the warm up lap they are there or there abouts running at 21psi throughout the race.

But what do the bambino tyres run at?

We start off around 27psi and then straight after the session balance them to 27 all round.

Then dependent on wear either up or down...

So you would suggest 27 as a good hot running temp? Thanks!
