im not sure what a G-60 tire looks like but i would start with 10 left side and 12 right side. then just go up or down from there.

With a lot of right side roll would that air pressure keep from rolling the tire off?

hmmmm.......it should. but im not sure. i forgot, i waz thinking about using beadlocks. if you cant use them it might not be enough pressure. 14 should be enough. i have ran 14 on the rf before without a beadlock. some wheels have an extra steep bead for when you cant run beadlocks. prolly just have to try it, and see. our street stocks can run a beadlock on the rr only. but before last year they couldnt. and they ran pretty low pressure. but the track waz alwayz smooth, and slick.

I was thinking it would be higher than that, He will be running on a half mile, fast race track with a heavy cushion most nights. No bead locks, I'm afraid of rolling the tires off. I think we'll start a little higher and work down, I don't dispute what you are saying, I'm just a little nervous about tire pressures that low, of course my mod is 2175# I can run tire pressures pretty low. We'll see.......
