I hate changing tires when I don't have to. Too much that can go wrong and if I am doing it just before I head out, those delays costs me ride time or on time arrival. (You have just given me more reason to wait on discs. I love the fast reliable changes of rim braked wheels. Even my bolt-on fix gear wheels change fast.) I feel much better about changing tires when I have say a night for problems to become obvious.

All my bikes have or share at least one more rear wheel than I have bikes of that standard and I have several more front wheel than bikes. (Four rear wheel standards and 3 dropout spacings. I love being able to just walk into the garage, decide the bike, grab the wheels/tires I want and go.)
