Tubeless wheel recommendation?

Looks like the wife wants a set of tubeless tires. I could use your recommendation for a brand that won't break the bank in 700c. I have a set of FLOs and they seem to be much more expensive now. Would like to run 25s or 28s ideally.

I'm also looking for a tubeless rear wheel for my 559 mountain bike.

Thank you.

If you are looking for road, I recommend Mavic Ksyrium Elite UST. I am currently running these wheels with Mavic Yksion tires that are 25s. They are lighter, faster and spin up more easily. I have had no flats. I bought them from Competitive Cyclist for less than $500 for the set and that included tires. They are easily inflated with a standard floor pump. Hope this helps:

I am biased to Campagnolo and Fulcrums, which are made by Campy.
Zipps too are pretty awesome and made in Indiana.

Look on Ebay for DT Swiss wheelsets with 350 hubs, a lot of them are under $400

I have Mavic Kysrium Elite wheels with tubeless tires on my Cannondale Quick 3...no issues whatsoever. Glad I listened to a friend's recommendation.

My view great value for money is my Easton EA90 wheels. Easy to mounted tubeless for me, both Panaracer and Schwalbe tires. Comes with spare spokes and all spokes same length should you break one on a adventure ride.
