up tp $350 budget for 29" wheels

Hey guys,

I have a Giant Toughroad SLR bike that is basically a hybrid/hardtail 29" bike with no suspension. I use the bike for utility on asphalt and concrete 90% of the time. Performance on on road is more important to me than off road. I already upgraded my groupset from the existing Acera to 10-spd XT. Now I would like to upgrade my wheels. What do you suggest in the $300-350 range?

Alex MD23 from Velomine for $180.00

Good Taiwan-made wheelset. I have Alex TD-20 on my Marin Muirwoods 29er and they're tough and are a good value.

Why do you want a more expensive wheelset?
