Default What do degree ratings mean for rubber tires

Hi, when buying rubber tires, I noticed that the have different degree ratings i.e. 27, 35 etc. What do the degree ratings stand for?

^Tyre compound hardness. The lower the number, the softer the compound.

Softer tyres give more grip, but wear quick and are better suited to colder temps. Vice versa for hard tyres.
