Default Recommended Tire Temp for best friction

I just started playing around with tire pressures and a tire pyrometer.


What temp and tire pressure should I be trying to shoot for on RE-71R tires 205/50/15 for the highest amount of friction?

Just based on my temp spreads across the tires, I think I have way too much camber for the turning I'm doing on the mountain roads, but I guess that's to be expected.

I'm guessing when I'm actually pushing the car (If I can, lol) on the track, the temp spread would even out more.

Thanks,
Marcello

You need to find the manufacturers rated operating temp.

Honestly, you just have to monitor your setup. Alignment/spring rate/etc and see what nets you the best compromise between feel/time.

Yeah, I read that, it's the reason I bought a pyrometer, I just couldn't find the specs on the tire, and Bridgestone hasn't gotten back with me.

I guess I'll have to call their tech department.

Gotcha, Buddy. I really need to get to some autocross and track events for some experimenting.

Thanks everyone
