The temp "gauge" is not a gauge; it's an indicator that says cold, ok, hot. It's driven by the ECU and dash electronics, and doesn't actually indicate temperature at all.

The reason is that the...

If they are the same tire, I wouldn't worry at all about the tread difference.
I wouldn't change the inflation pressures, either.

IMO, it's sophistry to insist that a tax break for an industry is not a subsidy. Certainly the WTO considers all the tax breaks given to Boeing and Airbus to be illegal subsidies.
