[200q20v] Tires (Cont'd)

I also run the Dunlop D60A2's. I haven't had noise with them, but I used to
run P7000's wore into some serious noise. I'm skeptical about the strength
of the Dunlop for the weight of the 200 though. Why is the tire only rated
to 36 psi? I really need more pressure in there to keep the edges of the
tires from wearing out before the center of the tread.
