Finally I know. Thanks tsk. But dont you think that this was true for normal tyres and not tubeless radials?

Tubeless radial are much stronger than normal tyres and also if you just fill to manufacturers recommended pressure than you should not face any problems. Do you agree?

Yes, that should be OK, theoretically. Problem is that a lot of pertol pumps have poorly maintained/uncalibrated gauges at their air station. Since under-inflation can be very dangerous, it is wiser to keep a 'margin' in hand and fill up a wee bit extra. If you have your own, reliable gauge, by all means stay with recommended pressure.

Well I have my own gauge and I also use a tyre pressure monitoring system in my car.

So for me manufacturer recommendation it is. Thanks for clarifying guys.

I am running a set of new Goodyear Eagles for my baleno and i inflate it with Nitrogen.

Advantage are Lower Deflation Rate(1 PSI per 2-3 Months) and and Nitrogen dosn't heat quickly like Compressed air, particularly on concrete roads.

I am maintaining 30 PSI though recomended is 29 PSI.Ride is a bit harder but has amaging road grip.I am planning to ride on 28-29 PSI sometime later.

If expansion of N2 is less than compressed air (for whatever reason), it would be ill advised to reduce pressure below the recommended value. At highway speeds the excessive flexing (because of N2 not expanding as much as compressed air) of the sidewalls might lead to blowout. At the very least the temps the tyres will have to endure would be higher, leading to accelerated wear.
