I ran 7PSI in the stock tires/rims before I went to a paddle/mohawk setup.

I aired down to 4 in the front and 6 in the rear and it helped. I then changed to paddles and smoothies and the difference is HUGE compared to running the knobbies. My only regret with the paddles is that I did not put them on sooner!
