Hi guys, just asking whats a good area of PSi to run tires at?
Does it depend on the tire brand and what compound they are?

I currently have a good set of bridgestone's and a fresh set of Mojo D2's

Depends on the brand, compound, class, setup, chassis, wheel etc. All of these are factors in tire pressure as well as track temperature and grip. Typically you’ll see anywhere from 10-15 PSI as the norm.
