High Tire Pressure For Street

Anyone else run 70-80psi+ and ride street?
I ride right around 90 personally, feels super solid and keeps me from bottoming out my rim from big gaps.
feels like it keeps me rolling longer and is a ton more responsive with 2.3 tires.
What tire PSI do you prefer and why?

I ride mostly street, tyres pumped around 75 psi, for the same reason as you, it feels fast & solid.
I like a bit lower pressure on front for extra cushion a on hard landings.
Also, I weight 200 lbs and love doing bump jumps, so low pressure + bump jumps = not good.

I ride street and never run above 60psi. My bikes dialled so it still rolls fast and smooth with 2.25 fit faf's. And i land smooth so I never hit my rim (I also love bump jumps, yet to hit my rim). But i live in the UK and the ground is never smooth, any higher pressure and you feel every little bump in the ground which I find very off putting.

100 psi for everything , pererably with smaller tires , if the psi hurts your wrists your not going fast enough

Around 75 front and 70 back, because I run a 2.20 front and a 2.40 back (I have clearance issues with my fork).

I run 110psi on a 2.2 front and 1.95 rear, I like to go as fast as I possibly can whenever I ride.

Used to run 100 PSI roughly if not 110 , it's awesome but fuck it can hurt your wrists if you don't have big tires , it feels so good though . Especially with 25-9 you get so much farther with your pedalling than if you had lower pressure
