Best tire temperature ??

Discussion in 'iRacing' started by Onno Naber, Feb 8, 2011.

  1. Hello guys
    I have a question:what is the best tire temperature for a racing tire in I racing (any car), to give the best grip,is there a "'magic "'number :confused:.



    Thanks :redface:
     
  2. Between 85 and 90 degrees most of the time. Can be higher with F1 cars etc. :)
     
  3. @ Ivo :thanks:
     
  4. Those temps seem low to me, not that I am not a pro or anything. Is that C or F, I'm guessing C. Here is what the tuning guide for the skip says."
    The peak temperature range for actual BF Goodrich radial tires likes those on the Skippy is 160 – 230° F (70 – 110° C)."​

    I think Ivo is mainly talking about GT and touring cars.
     
  6. Mainly yeah. But with most open wheelers like the Skip the optimal C is always abit higher then a for example a Touring car. :)
     
  7. If they ain't smoking, you ain't using em!

    If my tires are smoking, it means the rest of the car is on fire and I'm hurtling over the barrier!
     
  10. I find just around 190f is fine in most iRacing cars. I don't think the current tyre model is affected as much as it should be by temps.
