I put this tire on today. Previously I have run at 32 psi cold with a 5 degree increase when warm. This rear stepped out twice in a big way and scared the shit out of me. It only has 45 miles on it. Do I need to increase my tire pressure and what do you guys do during the cooler seasons?http://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r8/ttchad/img_2791-1.jpg

More than likely it stepped out because it's new and still had the smooth glassy surface and you may have pushed the lean angle on the smooth surface too soon. Once it's scrubbed in good it should be fine. For street riding I'd run about 34psi for the rear.

What Skeeter said about scrubbing it in.
To me, that looks like perfect, almost brand new tire. Not sure what "odd wear" you're talking about.
Personally, I wouldn't run more than 30psi cold.
Those 2ct's actually need a little more pressure than 30 as they have a real soft side wall. You get too much flex and the tire will roll over. Try a little more pressure and get the tire scrubbed in. Was this at the track or on the street? There are a ton of variables that could be in play here. I even use 2ct's at the track sometimes and they work pretty good for me.

OK I edited the previous pic to show what looked light melting or the edge rounding off. I do not know if this from being to aggressive coming out of corners or tire pressure. I had been on a rather large go kart track and it started to step out on the last two laps. The guy behind me said I was atleast a foot in a half out. I was pretty worried because I was almost out of track. I am sure it was well scrubbed in. I did not get a chance to take another pic because of the rain but the wear is on both sides.

the stepping out very well could be related to your right wrist

every set of pp's ive ever had did that
32-34 psi cold, and a very heavy wrist

I ride PP 2ct exclusively on the street. 35/35 is what I run. Edge to edge zero Mich men and arrows on the side. The only time they will step on me is cold or lack of proper throttle control.
Give them a few miles of corners to scrub in. Progressively leaning more and more. Should have no problems.
Might need some suspension adjusting too.
Give them a little a mile or so of curves to warm up before getting crazy.

I ran PP2ct's at Vir with 31f 33r without any problems I spun up once and that was my wrist getting excited. Other than that I didn't have any problems.
