Any help appreciated.

Email them.... they are preety repsonsive folks.

FWIW: I typically run 130# in the rear with no problems.

I had the same question. Here is what he wrote me back:

Although the factory does not issue a formal "maximum pressure rating" on our rims we feel that any of our current production rims will perform well at the rating of the tire. Personally, I have not inflated to anything over
140psi. There is a shop in Australia who inflates to 150 on a regular basis (depending on tire rating) with no problems. My best guess is that you shouldn't have a problem if the tires can handle it.
