The Eighth Inch Amelias aren't that great. The hubs don't spin anywhere near as smooth as the sealed Formulas on the wheelsets from Velomine. I don't remember how much they weigh, but I'm going to guess that they weigh a lot.
If you want a 30mm deep section rim, Weinmann DP18s (also available through Velomine) are pretty affordable, but also weigh in at about 2200+ grams per wheelset. If you're just riding around and not doing much tricking, DP18s should be pretty bomb proof.
Velocity rims are expensive, but they're also fairly light when compared to the competition.
If you want to lace your own 30mm rims, you can look at Kinlins, which are around 500g per rim.
Then there are also Mavic Ellipses, but they're even more expensive.
