I actually had to do a study of this as it relates to new cars. We found in our study only about 1-2 lb increase when there was direct sunlight on a tire for an extended period of time. That's for stationary cars. We did not do it for cars that have been driven for a while.

The thing that irks me the most about tires is the one piece of information that is the most important is in the smallest font possible and hidden somewhere on the daggum tire. The tire pressure should be a very prominent piece of information.

No one mentioned replacing the old & fatiqued air every spring. New spring air is worth 2 HP.

Actually the tire pressure indicated on the tire may not be correct for your bike. The correct pressure is in your owners manual.

Couldn't we just eliminate proper inflation maintenance and worries by running solid rubber tires? And when the solid rubber tire has worn most of the tread pattern away just go to the tire shop and have new tread patterns burned/branded in?
