Moda Stretto or Giant TCR Advanced 2 - which to buy?
3600km, much of that over the winter, rear hub is noisy, grinding, slightly wobbly, Mavic XP22 with Shimano hub.
Buddy at the LBS says better just get a new wheel rather than replacing bits, keep the old one for next winter.

Have you inspected the bearings? Might just need some new balls / cones / grease and some tlc to keep going.

well on a recent service the mechy did say the bearing cup was getting pretty worn, to be fair.

If it's Shimano hub, its a cup and cone jobbie and once the race is worn its a new hub. You could replace the hub and lace it up onto the existing rims and get your LBS to true it up, but in truth it might be just as much to get a replacement wheel.
Having said that, is it possible just to replace the freehub bearing? That sounds like it could be at least part of your problem.
