Default road temp and tire choice

If the track temp is about 135F, which would you choose, sorex 36R or 40R?

Probably go with 36's, but it also depends on how abrasive the track is and how much grip the track gives.

We have used Sorex 32's with the track at 50degC but they are right on the limit.
