American Classic acrd 2218 rim ?

Hi:
Has anyone built a set of wheels with this rim? Looking to have set of wheels rebuilt with my power tap hubs in a tubeless setup. I weigh 138 lbs using as training wheels. Considering this rim or DT RR 440s . Thoughts?

I've got em built around some 24/28 alchemy hubs...weight = 1300 grams. They are light so I went with a few more spokes for durability/stiffness. I rode them all winter in horrendous conditions and have raced them all spring and summer...with 25mm Vittoria open corsa's, they make my stiff aluminum frame ride almost plush. Hit a Belgium block last week at 30 mph...rim has a very slight dent in it...can't feel it all when I brake though.
