never use less than 370C , with proper tip ....... and if you're soldering fat wire or something substantial , feel free to crank it all the way up , with intention that your soldering lasts as short you can manage

larger tip means much lesser temp hysteresys on very tip of ..... tip

so , better to use slightly fatter tip than slightly narrower

I have 2 solder stations on my bench , one equipped with 7mm chisel tip type for fat wires and mosfet legs , and second ( in fact that being first/main) with tiny tip .... which isn't at all tiny - not pen/needle sharp , but more like as tiny flat chisel - having flat part of some 0.7mm

that one doing all my SMD presoldering , using hot air only as final soldering operation

so , with that amount of heat , which you most probably are investing in your soldering- even with pads which on eye are staying intact , you're compromising their bond to pcb

so , think where you're doing it wrong

no problem if SIT is close to Donut - look at my builds
