Hi, I know lots of people like fancy things, but I’m also pretty cheap.
Aluminum clinchers, I’ve had good experience with KinLin XR31TS. It’s stiff, cheap, and solid to work with, and love the deeper rim. I wish I could splurge on more fancy rims, but if I do I go carbon so haven’t tried the expensive alloy stuff.
On lower pressure stuff, I do use Stan’s Grail (first version). They are fine. I also have Pacenti Forza, those are good too. I’ve only used low pressure there, as they are gravel setup and the Pacenti Forza is 650b, while the Grail is 700c. For road, I have the KinLin XR31TS.
I have, in the past, used Velocity rims. They are OK. The light rims are a bit noodly, but I’m 175+lbs
I buy parts and build it up my own wheels. For budget, I just use novatec stuff, and I like to purchase kits from bdopcycling.com. Novatec has served me well over the years. I know people have blown them up, but I have not. I don’t have a high FTP, but do have a bigger sprint than most, and haven’t had any problem in years.
