Default Rubber tyres and inserts

Can someone point me in the right direction to understanding the effects of combining different inserts, tyres and wheels on tarmac and carpet. Is there an information source where it's all readily available?

What is physics of the rubber working. I understand that a lower No. is a softer rubber, but , what do the different inserts achieve on the same rubber.

How is track temperature important?

What's the best way to apply additive? Should it be cleaned off between runs or allowed to build up?

Do tyre warmers give an advantage?

Older thread, but still valid information.
