External ambient only affects the ability and rate of a tire to shed heat.
Bending at the belt edges should be more on a tire loaded to its max? So a tire with a larger margin should run cooler?

The simple things really are simple, humans just make them complicated.

More load = more heat
More speed (more bends per second) = more heat

More Load + more speed = MORE HEAT
