650 Conti Grand Pri tire inflationmatthew

I purchased a continetal grand pri 650X23 tire. In the cataloge the stated max inflation was 160psi, but my tire wall says 120psi. Is the 160psi rating for the 700 tire only or is it safe to take my 650 tire over 120? Thanks

My bike had originally came with 650x20 tires. Those were indeed 160psi max. When I got new tire (again conti's) I went with 23's. I did notice that the "max" psi says 120. I'm not sure why that is. I wouldn't risk blowing the tire though.
