I ride 700x23 road tires at 120 to 110 to aviod pinch flatting on the awful roads of Atlanta. I bust rear spokes now with regularity. Would increasing tire size to 25 or 28 instead of 23 make a difference in breaking spokes? Would it allow a more comfortable ride? Would it increase rolling resistance.

These tires are going on my CXP21 Mavic training wheels, so weight isn't an issue. I just want to make my wheel bulletproof on the Atlanta asphault.
