Just a guess, I would try around 30 psi make a run then see how warm they are.

Being the tard is lighter thus wont create as much heat, etc.

 well i run 25 all the way around cold and it sticks with no slipping and sliding, but it depends on how you want it to feel.  i also have the pp's   if your pushin hard you will gain 4 to 6 psi. all depends on road temp, air temp, and how your gonna ride            starting at 30 is crazy you would be washing out every turn, not good
