View Full Version : GT3 soft tires temp

15-06-2015, 01:15
Hi, I am no GT3 guy driving them for my first season now in Endurance series and never liked GT3 in other games, but love it on pCars and Endurance series! So im not sure if this is a bug, problem by me driving style, normal or whatever. But everytime I use the GT3 soft slicks they get very hot and are red for the most of the times, and around 115-118 in temp, so is that normal or?...I use tire wear x2 if that matters

You pushing too hard for sure. Try slow in, fast out.

Soft tires will heat up a lot faster then harder tires, and will wear out much faster then harder compound tires.

Well, it happends early in the first few corners and I dont push hard on the outlap...

Try changing the tire wear setting to Real and report back.

I use soft in GT3 with 'real' tyre wear and don't really get much issues with red tyres.. Usually if they go red then they turn back to green on the straights.

If it's a hot country though you may be best on medium slicks.

I'm afraid I honestly cannot remember where I nicked this info from, but I hope you find it as useful as myslef:

GT3 Soft: 80 - 110C, very high wear
GT3 Medium: 75 - 105C, same as GT2 Hard
GT3 Hard: 70 - 100C, same as GT2 Hard
