Were Lateral G's this high in FM5?

I’ve been a Forza player since FM2 but I skipped out on 5, having made the jump to the Xbox One just a few months ago. I was pretty surprised when I upgraded to the street performance tires on the 97 Civic Type R and saw that the lateral G measurement was 1.07! I’m assuming this is peak lateral grip and not average, since in FM4 the lateral G readings were much lower and seemed to be pretty close to the skidpad average measurements taken from car magazines. Correct me if I’m wrong. Also, I’ve noticed that when the tires heat up, the front and rear temperatures are close to identical unless you’re overdriving the car. I thought that front-heavy cars had higher front tire temps and vice versa. What’s the reason for these changes?
