I have a question which may sound stupid: Assuming there is a flat race circuit with windy conditions, which would be the better wheelset to use: 46mm, 58mm or 88mm rim depth?

I am heavy rider and can ride a disc wheel in strong wind conditions with no issues. Hence, handling is not an issue.

I would like to know whether a deeper rim depth would be more aerodynamic in a circular racing circuit with strong winds.

Some say that it depends on wind direction and altitude terrain...so assuming it is a circular lap and totally flat. If hills were to be factored in then a lower profile would be better due to weight.

Looking forward to any technical answers. Thanks.

i know i'm picky about this, but why isn't this post in the 'wheels & tires' section? is it really so hard to pick the correct part of the forum that you just randomly post questions?
