Does water in road tires really matter?

Went through some deep water on my road bike recently. When I changed a flat noticed how wet it was. As long as I'm not racing does it really matter that the tubes are wet in the tire?

Just something I've been wondering about.

I honestly don't know but, if it was my bike, I'd pull my tires and rim strips and let my rims dry out.

I think that I'd pull my seat post and let the inside of my frame air out too.

Corrosion or rust is the only thing I'd worry about in that situation.

Well your spokes are probably stainless steel, and your nipples aluminum or brass. Rust should not be a problem there

Unless you ride aluminum or steel rims.
