For those of your running PIlot Road 3 - do your run at 42/42 or something else?

I run between 41 - 44 (as the tires leak a bit throughout the summer). I top them off every couple of months.

I've found that older tires towards the end of their live do leak at a higher rate- a couple PSI/week vs each month...but I think 42F/40R is what most people shoot for on the C14

Thanks guys - been running 42/40 for the last week - seems about right.
