We run the premounts S-TSHGM4W here in Florida, and they hold up well in the heat. I am no expert, but my intrepetation of the part number is this....
S = Solaris
TSH = Touring,Slick,Hard
GM = Insert, Medium
4 = 4 of them
W = White wheel.
We run this tire from 70f -140f degree track temps.

I have a set of pre-mount SB35 tires that seemed to be working pretty well, but today it felt like I was driving on ice. I took a reading of the track temperature between heats and it read 117 degrees Fahrenheit, ambient temperature was about 80. The tires had 5 prior runs on them and do not look too badly worn. The temperature was a few degrees warmer than before and the track was sprayed with sugar water today and got nothing before.
In contrast, I put a new set of Solaris S-MSS0M0B (whatever that part number means???) on my mini cooper and it was glued to the track today.
Should I have been running a harder or softer compound on my touring car? It felt the same with and without traction compound.
Thanks for any insight anyone can provide,
