Default digital tire warmers???

Default tire temp

ok this is what me and my buddy do. warm them up to about 130 and run the car for 10 or so laps till the car feels good, once the car feels good immidiately take a reading on the tire in the center on all four tires. record it and set your temp on the heaters to about 20 degrees hotter. that way when you start your tires will cool a bit but they should be about perfect after 1 or 2 laps. hope this helps. doug
