If you can afford it, get a second set of wheels. I have one set with beefier rims and a 13-30t stack and 32c knobbies for dirt, and another set with light rims, 26c slicks, and a 12-21t stack. It's great to be able to switch wheels in a matter of seconds, depending on what I want to do that day.
Still, all you really need are a pair of decent road tires. The cross gearing is fine.
