Wall of tires for teams
According to Nascar rules, each team participating in a Sprint Cup Series race -- which is Nascar's major leagues -- can use up to 10 or 11 sets or tires, depending on the race. The tires are not all the same, however. Right-side tires are about an eighth of an inch larger than left-side tires and usually have higher pressure, which helps cars in the turns on a racetrack stay stable
This wall of tires is outside the Goodyear garage at the Indianapolis Motorspeedway prior to the Brickyard 400. Typically, Goodyear brings about 4,500 tires to each Nascar race.
