Hey LOVE IT, where in FL are you?
I'm over in Sarasota, want to hook up for a ride?
What kind of tubeless wheels did you get? What is it you don't like? Just the squishy ride. Why not just put in some regular tubes? Am I missing something?
As far as wheelsets or rims only, I tend to lean towards some Mavic rims handbuilt to some nice hubs. If you want mac daddy sweet wheels and have $550-$600, I'd suggest some Chris King ISO hubs laced to a Mavic X317 rim. If you want a burlier rim, but not DH heavy, go with the F219 rim.
If you want more affordable wheels, you can get a set of Shimano XT hubs laced to some rims for about $250-300.
