The benefit of a probe tire pyrometer is that it measures tread temperatures at the cord. All tires will develop their optimum grip when the rubber compound is heated to their optimum grip. Race tire manufacturers provide optimum tread temperature info for a given compound. Use a probe type pyrometer to get the cord temperature and decrease lap times as you increase tire life. A double win in the racing world.
