Hi. What would the optimum tire temperatures be for cars of this mod. In GTL they were around 80-90 degrees and two or three degree difference between inside and outside of the tyre. Would these be good values to aim for?

I mostly need this information for GTC-TC-76 and LM72 -cars.

The tyres are not all that sensitive to temperature, if you stay between 50 and 110 you're pretty much ok. Optimum temp is 90. If the inner/middle/outer temps vary a few degrees, it shouldn't be very noticable.

THe most important thing is to not worry when you see 100c, thats still fine. at 120 you sort of start noticing extra slipperyness.

After the patch 1.95 there's much more tyre compounds used, but the question is the same... Is the optimal temp 90 for all types?
And one more, could you share some info about optimum pressure for different tyres, please.

Oh, a 2008 thread has been rescued!

85 deg for all cars except the Minis, which is 90 deg ;)

Optimal pressure would be one that makes the tires work after some laps in between the temps of the outside and inside of the tire.
