Default MPC Black Magics in the rain?

The weather watch for A2A has begun and while it is much to early to call, right now the forecast looks sketchy.

On an 87 mile course, mounting rain wheels when it is mostly dry is almost as bad as mounting dry wheels when it is rainy.

Does anyone know how Black Magic's perform in the rain? I'm trying to determine how quick I should be to mount the Storm Surge's.

Last year I needed rain wheels but did not have them. I had just moved to 110's and the only rain wheels I had were 100's. Naturally, the WRW Truth 87A's I was using turned out to be absolutely abysmal in the rain.

I am somewhat optimistic about the Black Magic's. In certain contexts they are billed as track wheels. My 100mm rain wheels are actually re-purposed track wheels.
