I'm sure that any type of motorcycle is better for the commute in your city. You are right about the possible wheel damage with bad roads.
Something like this would be nearly perfect.

Funny that you mention that, not long ago a member on the PCX forum shared that in Thailand they swap in 13 inch wheels onto their Honda PCX, so that they can fit fatter tires with more side wall, that way it can handle the bad roads. The Honda PCX comes with 14 inch wheels from the factory.
I also usually prefer a smaller rim and tyres with a higher sidewall.
