Some race worthy wheels are also plenty tough for general riding.

Mavic's Ksyrium SL or Carbone clinchers are good examples. Some will complain that Mavic's are over priced for the weight, but you can't argue with how tough they are. My Ksyriums have been through 5 years of general road riding, a few crits, time trials and a season of cyclocross with zero issues.

Psimet can undoubtedly build you something in the same vein for less $.
