The problem is with Campagnolo is that there is no such thing as a cheap decent spare rear wheel. However I picked up a brand new Mavic CXP rim with a Campy hub, so with a used identical Chorus cassette I’m all in for just over £100, if it had been Shimano I could have bought everything for about half the price.
I had a similar time putting studded tyres on my commuter. It turns out they are heavy: When I'd fitted he studded tyre on the back I took the front out and the upside down bike tipped backwards.I had a tyre swaporama this afternoon, I replaced the 23c GP 4000's off my Van Nicholas for new 28c GP 5000's. They just fit under the mudguards, but they will be much better for town riding with panniers. If needed I can run them at 85psi which will make riding a bit more comfortable.

I recycled the slightly worn 4000's on to my Ribble EM2 Turbo bike, I've also today bought a spare Campag rear wheel off eBay just for the turbo, so I can then quickly swap rear wheels and use the Ribble on the road this summer. Plus it will be useful as a spare road bike, if we ever have guests again!

Only the two largest sprockets were serviceable.
