I remember a chart on the Michelin web site that had a chart with recommended tire pressure for a rider weight and tire size, but I can't find it anymore. Does anyone know of any similar info?

For a 700x23 tire what pressure would a 150lb, 175lb, and 200lb rider use?

I don't know the Michelin chart but different tires have different max pressures. I am 200lbs and use the max pressure on the tire.

Michelin recommends lower pressures than most manufacturers (110 psi max is typical). After that max limit, you reduce pressure for comfort and raise it if you're getting pinch flats. Lots of personal factors that prohibit a strict recommendation just based on rider weight.
