I'm 225ish lbs, my stock rear wheel recently met the same fate as yours.

I picked up a "Handspun Pavement Series 5" wheel. The tension is mostly even, and the wheel runs true. The parts used are quality, so I've high hopes for this wheel. It's a Deore LX hub, DT Swiss spokes, and a Mavic A319 rim. Weighs a ton, but so do I. Ran $170 after taxes, cassette swap, and rim tape from the LBS.

It can be had for about $114 from Amazon.
