Can you recommend

a set of inexpensive 700c wheels for my vintage Peugeot? I would like to run up to 30mm tires so I can ride gravel roads and I wouldn’t mind going tubeless to boot. Course, I have a 7 speed cassette and rim brakes. I would really appreciate your help and recommendations because I haven’t a clue.
Thanks!

Velomine.com is the best source for wheels, in my view. Finding ones with 126mm spacing so that you can plug and play might be a bit of a challenge.

Yep, Velomine is a good option.

I will echo the Velomine recommendation. They have options for wheels built with Sun rims, and also Weinmann LP18 rims - 700c/126 spacing. I have used both and they are a great value. I still use a set regularly.

I'd advise to give them a call to make sure they have what you want in stock.

I read on the internet that Velomine was a good source.
