For the rears, assuming they're 20" 406 (as opposed to 20" 451), look at BMX tires, like the Tioga Powerblock, which are available in a wide 1.95" width. They'll be wider than road going 406s,...

I don't know if you're reading the literature correctly, but I've never seen anything to suggest the rear wheel would confer more aerodynamic gain than the front, and it doesn't make any sense it...

If the priorities are comfort and speed, I'd go Cosine.

I've not used them, but I looked at them before deciding to go American Classic Victory 30. They're well regarded wheels, and have the...

I'd be going tubeless and mid-depth, like 30mm or so. Campagnolo Shamal 2way Fit would work, but Shimano RS81 C35 can be had for a very sweet price out of Germany: Shimano WH-RS81-C35-TL Wheelset...

What is a "waste" is a matter of what is one's goal, but certainly high speed pedaling can be counterproductive to going faster if pedal torque is also significantly reduced.
