Is anyone bringing rain tires to the competition? If so, how are you planning on swapping your tires mid-competition?

We are planning on bringing either rains or intermediates in the event of rain. We will change them by pulling into pit lane and swapping wheels.

You're going to need 8 rims and two different sets of 4 tires. One set for rain, the other for dry. Being ready for any type of weather is expensive! 8)
