rims suggestions?

soon I will need to replace my rims.

What are some decent rims? I want something that will hold up to some good abuse but I don't want to take out a loan from the bank just to purchase them.

any suggestions?

I have 26 inch wheels, 32 spokes.

thanks!

I just bought 321d Mavics. These are bombproof and only 90$ cdn. They come in 32 and 36 spoke flavours. Well worth it.

www.Bikecanada.com
http://www.unrealcycles.com/

Those are the two I would use if I ordered online. Obviously bikecanada is canadian but they have a conversion thing online.
