Actually its not. It is about the hot pressure. So in the cold you start lower but the tire temps end up being the same. Just takes longer to get up to temp.

Most people, when its cold, go out gingerly on a warm up lap. Really need to go out a little more aggressive to build heat in the tires.

I usually drop it an extra PSI or two below my hot target so that as it gets warmer, I'm not always over my target.

So when you set your cold pressure in 80 degree weather they come up less in pressure than when you set cold pressure at 40 degrees!

Your tires have a temp range. Should stay with in them...not that I've ever really worried about it.

Once I get the hot PSI right in a set of tires I shouldn't have to mess with it until I dismount the tires. Which has usually been the case. So on a colder day, the starting PSI will be lower.

Aim for the right HOT potatoe or tomatoe and we're good

ambient temp, track conditions and pads/tires play into all of this.

They can be swapped left right and front to back and can be flipped on rims if you want.
