Could someone please clarify the temperature rating in relation to the way the testing is done.
This has always occured to me as something which more than a few people are concerned with, e.g.
Sorex 36R tyre
According to the Sorex site, this tyre is rated at 35.55 - 66+ celcius (96 - 151F)
My question is - where do you get that reading?
a) track temperature (just aim the temp gun straight at the track)
b) ambient temperature (just sample the temperature in the air)
c) tyre temperature (straight after the race - put the temp gun onto the tyre - to get an operating temperature.
Which one is correct?
And finally, consider the different wear and tear in different classes... Everything else being the same - the modified will run the tyres harder than stock - So you might find that the stock would work better with 32R's and the modified would work better with the 36R's.
Could someone clarify this please...
