Jeff, my apologizes for not expressing myself right. In your previous post you said for the optimal grip that i should reduce pressure to 5 lbs. Lbs is a mass unit. Are you referring to lb/in^2 which is equal to psi? In simple terms should i lower pressure to 5 psi (lb/in^2) to achieve best traction? I hope that make sense now.
No problem, when I say "pounds" or "lbs" I actually mean psi so you can convert from there, here is a great conversion chart that might assist you:

Yeah they're swell tires especially for the price. They perform really well and I gotta say they look mean, every time I approach my car I'm like "Dang that thing looks like it wants to hunt you down". Like a life sized micro machine. All squatted down on big fat tires with tread that looks like flames. Much more interesting looking that your average summer tire, with performance to match.
