Default Suggested pressure for A048??

What do people suggest for cold and hot pressure for A048 255/40/17?

Climate is hot, 89 F. I use tire warmers that set the tire temp to 176F. I have to use these because the races are short.

When I ran 245/40-17 I had to run them a little lower than I would normally run an R-Comp. Anything over 35-36 lbs. hot and the center they'd lose grip and would wear the center more than the edges.

I assume you mean cold pressures? That's about what I ran for cold pressures.

I ran a set of these at 23-25, i figured it out backwards (figured out what hot temp psi worked waited for them to cool off and checked them then) my hot psi was 32-33 psi

Did anybody come out with the optimum temperature for these tires?

What is the temperature range they perform best??

From my experience and post above, I'd say you want somehwere between 33-36 hot.
