None at all. In fact, getting a cheap set, or a good 2nd hand set, means that if you find yourself wanting to upgrade you can keep the first set as training wheels.
I have a set of Mavic CXP22, second hand on eBay, bought for €65. They also came with excellent Conti 4000 race tyres. Those tyres went on my race set, Mavic Cosmic Experts (elderly but still good) that I run with a Wheelbuilder rear wheel cover.
The CXP22 set have Vittoria Zaffira training tyres, which have proved really good, high puncture resistance.
HOpe this helps!
