I can’t read the tire pressure requirements on the tire.

For the best mileage possible, you want to run the maximum pressure labeled on the side of the tire. If you are unable to read this, start at 65PSI for 2” or smaller tires, and 30PSI for a 3” or smaller tire.

If this is too harsh or uncomfortable, feel free to deflate the tire as you see fit, and take the bike for a test ride.  

For comfort, you want the rear tire to compress slightly, roughly ¼”, when seated on the bicycle saddle. A pressure too low may cause a flat tire. Experiment a bit with higher and lower pressures to find the one that suits your riding style the best.
