Match tire pressure is better than equalize the temperatures when they are hot?
It seems that with equal tire pressure (hot tires) the car runs a lot smoother...

This depends in what you're looking for.

Equalization of pressure can be beneficial in cars with low rear tire wear or cars with AWD. However in cars with a lot of power, equalization of temperature is probably best for longevity as the rear tires will generate more friction and so need to be adjusted likewise in order to get even wear over a run.

It depends heavily on the car. Also probably should be in setups forum.
