    Different wheelsets for different tires

    Does anyone here have different wheelsets for different types/widths of tires? Is it necessary to have a set of disc brake rotors for each set, or is it easy to just swap them out? What about the cassette? Thanks!

    i will eventually. it's not difficult to swap rotors/cassette but it does take a little time.

    I like wide tires for dirt, so stick to the same rims...

    But If I were swapping wheels, I'd have at least brake rotors for each wheel. Swapping 6-bolt rotors would be a bit much. The Shimano system might be an easier swap.

    Thanks for the replies. I do have a center lock disc brake rotor in my current setup, which i thought may make the swap easier. Not sure about the cassette, but sounds like that shouldn't be too difficult either. I also want to be able to go to a wider tire but currently have an xm719 which has a max spec of 2.3 for tire width.
