Default Comparing Touring "tires", not foam

I'm not looking for recommendations but 'specs' on the three biggies; Take-Off CS & RP and Sorex Tires. I have some different brands and I know their temp ranges are not the same but If someone know where I could git the specs and possibly do a chart for them, then I/We would have a quick referance for tires choice of the day/hour/track temp.
I bot some CS tires once and they came with the specs for 4 of their diff. compounds. I have some Sorex 36's and Schumacher web site says they are good from 96 - 151 degrees/F. but if I could get the specs for all compounds, I could more easily decide which tire to run at a specific condition.
Thanks fer all the hep, I already culled from this forum and for any hep U kin provide, Dave

I heard that the number for the compound is the recommended temp racing in C*.

i was once told that.

CS22, 24r and RP24 are the same

CS27, 28r, RP30 are the same

CS32, 36r and RP32 (or is it 36?) are the same

then, i don't know what sorex 20r's are the same as...just some crazy soft compound (all i know is they work great on carpet and last forever )

Looks like I got response, for all the types, that I asked for so Thanks to all that contributed. Now kin some of the RC GURUs chime in and confirm the approximate comparisons the the #'s given.
This is gonna be very helpful to me an' anyone else that reads this, plus I'll be more knowledgable, so I can pass it on to the local new guys.

But you have just started to scrape the surface! Now we can get into insert/tire combos. Let the madness begin!!

Those temperatures are referred to air or track temperature?

Sorex
15 - 20 - 24R
20 - 28 - 28R
27 - 36 - 32R
36 - 66 - 36R
49 - 77 - 40R

Powers
00 - 25 - PJ-22
10 - 45 - PJ-27
20 - 60 - PJ-30
40 - 70 - PJ-35

Not seen any temp ratings for the RP tyres at all, neither has a model shop i know. But they did reckon the RP24 sits between the CS22 and CS27. Havent tried any of the new tyres so cant say, temps in celsius btw.
