Do you want to rebuild both wheels ? Or just the damaged rear ? If just the rear, then maybe you want to find a rim that looks similar to the front.
If you rebuild both wheels you have lots of choices. One minor limiter is the number of spoke holes in your hubs.
Things to consider:
Carbon rims (needs special brake pads) or aluminum.
How heavy are you ?
Type of riding / intended use
budget (including rims, spoke, labor)
Then you may get better responses if you re-post in the "Road" forum.
