Setup Conversions and Tire Choice For Changing Weather

Keys to Becoming a True Wet Weather Warrior!


This is one-stop reference guide to go to when weather starts to change on you! :)

How to use this guide:
>Each weather value has the following information next to it:

Recommended Tire Choice ................ Wet Factor % (KT WetDry Tool value)

-Tire choice: Using any other tire will give reduced feedback!
-Wet Factor %: How wet the conditions are
-KT WetDry value: Dividing the Wet Factor % in half gives you the value to enter on the WetDry slider to convert your setup for that weather!

*some Wet Factor% are odd numbered and do not divide into whole integers (40.5, etc.). Round up or down to the next whole number (40 or 41) when using the slider. I personally prefer rounding down.

*Special Note*: Sometimes you will be told that the weather has changed! and to reevaluate your setup, only to see that the icons used for the weather remain the same (shows Bone Dry for Warmup and Race.) This means that the weather has indeed changed, but not fully to the next weather value! Use your best judgment in how little or how much you wish to adjust your setup in these cases!
