Wheelset under $600

Have been doing some research but can't seem to find any good answers. Looking to upgrade the stock wheels on my 2014 Breezer Repack Expert, but maybe it's not even worth it.

Here's a description of the stock wheels: Shimano Deore 15mm Thru-Axle 32H CenterLock Front / Shimano Deore 12mm Thru-Axle 32H CenterLock Rear, WTB SX23 27.5" Rims

I like the bike, the biggest drawback is the weight. Going to get rid of the triple and make it a single, and thought some new wheels might help too. Suppose I should take em off and weight them to see. Would also like to go tubeless.

If you can build your own ....

My in-progress wheelset is going to run under $200 and about 1800g but labor intensive.

Otherwise patrol the classifieds and pinkbike etc. for targets of opportunity.

There is a guy in the states on eBay selling carbon wheels for $400-$500. Might want to look it up.
