Really, I do. I know the few sizes I need for my current bikes, but I think I prefer to just buy a set. What are some common sizes I'm likely to encounter working on others bikes, newer than mine?

  1. Basic Park Set is 13-24mm
  2. option A adds 26mm
  3. options B adds 26 & 28mm

I've been able to handle whatever* with a newer Park set 13-18, and a couple cheaper 13-16 wrenches I'd previously bought.

What are the 20-whatever for?

*Shimano, Stan's, Mavic, Formula etc.

Some through axle hubs have the caps/nuts held on with some large stuff.

My $0.02: cone wrenches are a super consumable item, since you can't guarantee that whoever put it together didn't gorilla it. Buy a couple of sets of BikeHand stuff, and a few of the larger sizes you need outside of that. They/IceToolz make decent tools, despite the names. They are painted tools, but other than that, are fine. You'll need to zip some of the thickness off to work on old Shimano stuff (pre-disc mountain bike, older Ultegra/Dura Ace), but otherwise, they're good to go.

Even buying two sets (more useful than you might think if you have cup/cone stuff) and a few of the larger ones you need, you'll still be ahead of a full [single] set of Parks.
