When I first started experimenting with Plus rubber (3" DHF) I happened to bump into some of the Rocky Mountain guys who'd been playing with big meat for a while (Pipeline 27+, Suzi-Q w/ 29+ setup, Maiden with 26+, etc) and they called me on to much pressure just at a glance.  Scotty from Rocky told me his trick was to keep airing them down until they got squirrely in corners or I started bottoming too much and then add a bit of air and that's how I've set up big rubber since then. I've only bothered to get PSI numbers for article's sake as usually, I do it all with feel.  What's crazy with CushCore is the support leaned over is so good I actually find myself adding a bit more air than I need based on those factors (bottom out and cornering support) just to make the tire ramp a bit more progressively.
