    Best Wheels for a heavier rider

    I have an 04 GIANT OCR C2 with shimano wheels (not sure what kind), well i broke a spoke today and had the shop fix it only to find out that i will soon need new wheels. Last yr i broke a spoke and the wheel went wobbly pretty badly,after todays it wasnt really wobbling but they said a cpl spokes are really tight to keep the rim true and thats not good. Anyways i seem to snap the back ones but not the front but im assuming wheels should be changed as a complete set?....whats a good set of wheels that isnt a fortune for a 225lb rider?, is there anything that has a few more spokes and isnt aluminum nipples that will hold up better?
    Thanks
