    Idea! race tomorrow should I change tire

    So I have a race tomorrow and I have been using a racing ralph as my rear tire and it has worked great. I have rode the course with it and it's perfect, now it's raining and I'm worried I have a mountain king laying around should I swap them or just go with ralph. It's not a techy course but one big climb IM worried I won't get enough traction on.

    If it's muddy (in places) I'd go with taller knobs, not as much for traction but taller space out knobs shed mud faster than short flat knobs.

    My $0.02 would be to race on the same tire you've been training on.
