The wheel falling off of the wagon

On another rules change issue, I was just thinking about one of the tire rules. The rules state that the teams can change their tires at any point up until 3 minutes before the start. Doesn’t this mean that all of the teams will do this. So you will have the teams all suddenly putting the tires on at the last minute on the start / finish line to try and gain some advantage.

I can see this procedure, with a lot of teams stretched because it’s two drivers and only one pit crew, causing some last minute problems at the start of the season. They haven’t had any real experience of it, and it’s going to be all very last minute. I reckon there are going to be some starts with some cars not having all of their tires.
