I have been running the sweep f1 front and rear tires here in south fl. Slicks, ....They seemed to work good until july when it got Realllly hot 95 deg + air temp, 110-122 track temp. ran v24. will the 28 work better at these temps. what is the recommended temp for each tire? wonder if the groves will run cooler...

Yeah, I was planning on paying a visit to watch, but it coincided with my weekend getaway at Marco Island with the family - I guess Ill catch the next club race or open practice there.

For me the rears held up pretty good but the fronts Ware out rather quickly running the groove tires . I still have more run time on the rear groove tires have not tried the slicks yet Ive been running the V 24 extremes

What's a good sweep tire for ambient temp ranging from 28 to 39? Also whats the differences of evo-r pro and the normal R tires?

Generally (very generally), air or track temp in Celsius is your guide to rubber tire shore ratings on asphalt.

There's some wiggle room, but if you have a choice in tires, it's a good starting base. You can run softer tires, but over heating will cause them to go greasy, and they may not "recover" on subsequent runs. Right before they get greasy, the car may "lock down", which happens just over the optimum temp of the tire.

When I ran asphalt and had a choice in tire compound, I tried to find the one that just had some rubber build up on the outside edge where my camber didn't totally scrub the tire. If the tire comes off looking dusty, go softer. If the tire comes off looking shiney, go harder.

Some aggressive sauces will change the look and feel of the tire, so try to stick with sauces that clean the tire so you can get a good read without changing the shore too much. On a treated track (VHT or sugar), no prep is really required, you mostly want the tire clean to get a good post-run read.

On new tires, just break-in and clean enough to remove any seam and get the mold release off, again, so you can get a good tire read.
