I bought this bike: https://www.rei.com/product/159859/co-op-cycles-adv-22-bike back in April and have loved it ever since. Issue is, I wiped out when I was on semi wet pavement and when I spoke to bike shop associate, they told me it was due to the tires being meant for gravel.

I want to get bike tires that can hold up a little rain, and I intend on getting components for a whole new wheel so I can swap it out easily. 

For example, when I wiped out, it had rained the day before but it was sunny and a lot of the rain had dried up. I was barely on an uphill at the drop when I turned my wheel left just a little before the entire bike slipped out from under me completely.

Any advice about this situation welcome!
