cheap rims for my cross tires?

anyone have some ideas or leads on cheap rims that i can throw my cross tires onto... id like to get a 2nd set of rims so that i don't have to put my cross tires on my 'good rims (i.e. road rims)' and worry about them when i want to go ride some trails or forest roads or something.

I am hoping i can get a 9spd cassette and not have to tune too much between rim sets.

any tips?

Sun CR18 rims. They're about $30; you can't get a good rim for much cheaper than that. Build them up with a 9spd hub and match the same cassette from your road wheels and you shouldn't have any problems (as long as you keep your chain in good shape.)
