Trep Stickies in cold weather

I just ordered a set of 40" Trep Competition Stickies today and afterwards found a warning that is concerning to me. Maxxis says to not drive or transport their sticky tires in temperatures less than 32 degrees. Since I wheel in Tennessee in winter and spend time in Colorado and Utah in the fall and spring I will often be in temperatures below 32 degrees. This seems like a huge issue to me. Have others running Trep stickies dealt with temps below 32 degrees?

"important: For Cold Weather Storage (short-term or extended):
When the Maxxis competition tires are exposed to temperatures below 32F (0C), the unique racing rubber compounds used in these tires will lose their flexibility. This loss in flexibility can lead to potential cracking and other damage to the tire.

Do not move or operate the car with these tires mounted on the vehicle if conditions are below 32F (0C). Always store these tires indoors and at temperatures above 32F (0C). Avoid transporting and handling these tires in conditions below 32F (0C). Do not mount or dismount these tires when the surrounding work area temperature is under 50F (10C). Before mounting or dismounting, store these tires indoors for at least 24 hours in a temperature-controlled area of 68F (20C) or warmer. Remove these tires from the vehicle and deflate to half the normal air pressure during prolonged periods of non-use or storage.
