That's a tough call.
I convinced a cheapie throwaway dome tent (~$40?) to survive 4 burns, including at three long storms. Even then, it wasn't totally thrashed, just very old and I didn't want to risk it, so I kissed the box o' tent in reward for its service and gave it a viking funeral (which actually looked much like a solemn, bittersweet trip to the dumpster).
Thoughtful, thorough staking and camping North of a vehicle helped it last so long--though I didn't always have a wind shield. Only the 4th time did I get some better stakes (10" Coleman stakes) which I would recommend to almost anyone, and from the start. (Although a springbar tent is heavy, and probably needs rebar.)
With a cheapo tent, you just learn to get extra serious about zipping things closed, sewing over any unprotected mesh, and having a dustpan and broom around. It's also smart to protect your bedding, i.e. not count on rain-proofing 'til you're certain of your tent's characteristics. (If it looks like rain, roll your bedding and place it in a trash bag, or cover your whole bed with a sheet of plastic.) Point your door anywhere but South/Southwest, the wind's favorite origin. It helps--a little.
The tent I use now cost about $120 and this will be its 3rd year. I am so relieved to be able to stand up in it. It wont last a lifetime like a Springbar, but it's lightweight, roomy, goes up easily, and I can stand in it. I love being able to stand up in my tent. Bruised knees are for the birds.
When the current tent dies, I will probably opt for another decent (neither cheap nor pricey) tent.
