You should be good to go, Shimano makes good serviceable kit.
These are low spoke count wheels, in my day TT only, but seem quite reliable & efficient for my weight and road conditions w/o getting into deep-carbon $$$$ nonsense.
PS: The bearings need to be adjusted for just a "touch" of axle end-play before riding to avoid QR compression, then proceed and overhaul as necessary every season or three.
