Never heard of that. I use Schwable Marathon Plus' on my touring bicycles and have never had anyone (including the Schwable factory rep) mention putting tires in a basement. Besides, I don't have a basement. I'm pretty happy with the Bridgestones on my Shadow Aero. 12,500+ on them and they still have a lot of life left. I will need to replace the tires on my Rebel next year and I'll probably go with Metzlers. When the time comes to replace the Shadows tires, I'll get Metzlers for them as well. Two of my Guzzi have Metzlers and they feel superior to the Bridgestones. Better traction on the road when its raining out. And the few times I've ridden when its snowing, the Metzlers gripped MUCH better than the Bridgestones.

Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a "MAX PSI" embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300 pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Chances are that 30 to 35 psi will do the trick. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.
