This is a principle that people often get confused. The larger the tire, the less pressure is required to support the same amount of weight. What is the actual tire size? If stock, the optimal...

IMHO this is the biggest reason not to buy one. The engine itself would be a great choice, but transmissions matter, and I think the 10 speed is worth an engine upgrade.
