15 to 18 unless you want to run screws into them. With to low of pressure the tire can slip on the rim.

i would say cold??? if you conseder 90degree days at the track cold! we've run these tires at 10psi a couple times with no screws and never sliped the rim, but it is very posable you could at that low psi.

I ran mine as low as 14lbs cold on my old F-100 without a problem. But as jfive said too little and they'll spin on the rim. I'd start at about 20psi and work it down til' you find the sweet spot for for your truck and the current track temp.

"i would say cold??? if you conseder 90degree days at the track cold!"
I think he meant before or after a burnout

The water is just to help break traction to get them spinning, but you got the right idea. Just a quick spin to clean them and stop once they smoke. The less you burn them the longer they'll last.
