What tire pressure should I be running for daily commuting and my weight? I weigh 270lbs.

I'm seeing a lot of people run like 38 in the front and 40 in the rear, but it seems like the numbers are spread out quite a bit.

Tires are Dunlap Qualifiers.

I like mine to be up around those numbers when all I'm doing is commuting. I think I run mine a bit lower though... more like 36 front 38 rear. I'm on Dunlop Q2's

For commuting, I'd just max out the tire PSI. I think the manual says 36 front and 42 rear when cold? Drop that a lot if you plan on doing any type of spirited riding.

Just me, no tank or tail bags, 34-36, loaded for a long road trip, 36-38.
On the twistys (as @ the dragon 32-32)

I'm around 160 in my birthday suit.

36 front 42 rear. The bike responds so much better as such when you're avoiding potholes and idiot drivers. There's a lot of both in city commuting at least.
