Duratrac's vs hot climate

I live in Arizona and was wondering if anyone can comment or have any experience with using Duratrac's in extreme hot conditions.
It can stay above 100 degrees for weeks at a time here, 100-115 is common where I live.
Thank you

I had a long talk with Treadwright about this one time and they said that a jeep would not produce enough friction heat to effect a tire. They also said that they have to heat a tire to 800F before the rubber will start to bond.

We have pretty hot summers here as well (it was 97 today and 100 yesterday) I've had Duratracs on my TJ for three years. They don't seem to notice the heat. I'm sure they don't like being parked in direct sun for weeks at a time, but no tire does.
