Those stock wheels are just about bombproof, keep them for offroad. When I got the second wheelset for my Cross Check I just bought someone's take off wheelset that they had just upgraded. Paid $50 for them off Craigslist and picked up another cassette for about the same price. Just so you know, your new wheelset can use a 130 or 135mm rear hub it doesn't matter. I can switch between the two without any adjustments at all. The rear derailer is adjusted to clear an 11-32 cassette on my oem wheel with a 135mm hub and works just fine when I put in a 130mm hub with a 12-25 cassette.
