Per ISO/ETRTO rim recommendations you want about a 25mm internal width rim theoretically. It looks to me like the Rhyno Lite or Rhyno Lite XL should be good candidates. Some rim makers such as Mavic list narrower rims as acceptable for 2" tires. What is the internal width of your current rims?
Harris Cyclery is not the cheapest but is supposed to be good and apparently does a lot of custom IGH wheels. Any decent LBS should be able to do the job though.
