Default Take Off tires temp rating?

Does anyone know the temp rating for Takeoff tires? Both distributors that sell them (Corally and Schumacher) only list cool/warm, warm/hot, hot, and hot. As you can see, it's pretty vague.

Carl.....

CS22 - approximately up to 100 deg.
CS27 - approximately up to 120 deg.
CS32 - approximately up to 140 deg.
CS36 - approximately up to 140+ deg.

RP30 - not sure how they rate the new ones. They are a little bit softer and more grippy than a CS27. So I would say they fall just below that rating.

Remember these are metric temps(AKA made outside the USA)

CS22 = 22C or 71.6F
CS27 = 27C or 80.6F
CS32 = 32C or 89.6F
CS37 = 37C or 98.6F

Depending on your tack tempurature will determin what tires u use.

For instance i race indoor carpet. During the winter months so although the track is heated its in the basement of a mall track temps are lower. We run CS22 and CS27 tires. I personally would run CS22 all 4 or take away steering with CS27 front cs22 rear.

Each tire level will range +/-15C from its spec temp.
