And, welcome to Bike Forums.
If you could be so bothered, just use the search function within this Clydesdale forum and type in "wheels". There are no end of on going discussions about what does and does not work for a variety of Clydes.
Historically speaking 32h or 36h Mavic Open Pros have been a go to performance solution for heavier performance riders seeking a single wheelset to do everything from training to events.
There are lots of other options.
When you say "makeshift touring", are you adding additional, unsuspended, weight to the frame?
I've had good luck with a set of 36h Open Pros that lasted for approx. 20k miles. But, I rode them on mostly smooth roads and fair weather. I've since built the same rear wheel with a Velocity Deep V. So far that wheel is functioning well and feels reasonably stiff.
Depending upon your use and expectations you could use anything from those Open Pros to some of the 23 or 24mm wide trekking rims.
Give the search function a try. You'll see tons of opinions and then be better able to judge what you think may work for you.
Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.
