So I am considering getting a second wheelset for bad weather riding. The theory is that I would keep some more appropriate tires on them, and possibly a larger cog. The thing is that I want to buy a cheap wheelset to keep the cost down. Logic would hold that the better the wheels, the better they would hold up to inclimate conditions. However, they would also get used far less often.
If you were me, would you put the bad weather tires on the good wheels that will hold up better, or keep the good wheels for the skinny tires and majority of riding.
Please don't reply and say to buy another good set of wheels, I can't afford it, its not an option.
