Rim Recommendation to replace Weinmann XC180

Had a spoke pull through the rim on the rear wheel today while out for a ride. The 32 hole rim is a Weinmann XC180. Any recommendations for a new rim?
I weigh 210 lbs and ride the bike just for exercise, 10 to 30 mile trips. I run 700 x 35c tires and don't carry any loads on it. No, not looking to replace the whole wheel. The rim depth is 18mm, outside width 23.6mm and inside width 18mm.

Weinman lists the ERD as 602.25-
https://www.weinmanntek.com/product/2/5/41

So you have to find a rim with that ERD if you want to reuse the spokes.

Then you have to trust the ERD charts provided. That can be iffy.

I'll most likely replace the spokes. If I am going to lace up a new rim, might as well put new spokes in it.

I like the following rim manufacturers: Velocity, WTB, HED Belgium and H+Son. There are others out there but these are ones I use or would sell to a customer who is looking for a reliable rim.

A Sun Rims CR-18 is about .5mm narrower, stout & reasonable cost.

New spokes & nipples make the job much easier.

You did not say whether the rim is from the front or the rear and that would make a difference in selecting a new rim. Also, why not another Weinman rim but maybe 36 spokes? After messing with my own wheels over a number of years, I've come to the conclusion that one of the major aspects of rims it to get the spoke tension even. As soon as one spoke loosens just a bit, the remaining spokes have to pick up the load and that would lead to several other spokes also loosening. It is worthwhile checking spoke tension with some frequency. In any case, take a look at the link. https://blog.fairwheelbikes.com/revie...y-rim-roundup/

Why not? You are happy to replace the spokes, so already there is not going to be a lot left of the original wheel, you don't mention the hub, but unless it's mid-high end, getting a complete wheel will be cheaper/easier/quicker than going through the process of stripping your down, ordering new parts, and building the wheel.

How much use/wear has the current hub had? if it has cartridge bearing, and these are going to need to be replaced at some time soon, going for all new makes even more sense.

As mentioned in the original post, it is the rear. Thanks for the link.
