The web site add for the tire says "The faster a tyre rolls, the hotter the tread gets and the greater the centrifugal forces that arise. At high speeds, tyres can heat up beyond 100 degrees,..." in AZ the tire can reach over 100 degrees sitting still.

100
That would be the international, modern temperature unit of Celsius rather than the old imperial Fahrenheit. :welcome:

100 Celsius= 212 Fahrenheit

Its actually simple:
0 Celsius is freezing water
100 Celsius is boiling water.

and BTW
360 km/h = 225 mph ;)

Or try http://www.sciencemadesimple.net/conversions.html for you everyday imperial to modern conversions
