wheel upgrade suggestions

would like to upgrade the wheels on my 2010 hardrock disc the lbs has a set of rhynolite wheels w/xt hubs for 179.95 are these ok. i want to get a durable possibly lighter wheelset than what it came with stock. if i cant lose weight i at least would like to stay around the factory wheels weight. what do you guys recommend what about the azonic outlaws are they any good.

Price point?

I have an XT hub and I love it. The ratchet palls are fine enough that it picks up pretty quickly when you start pedaling.

to heavy

everyone says the rhynolite wheels w/xt hubs are either to heavy or they call them
boat anchors. this is fine as long as they are not heavier than what the bike came with originaly. does anyone know what the weight of the original wheels was. i dont mind not shedding weight if they are a bit stronger but i dont want to gain extra weight.

To heavy or not to heavy? That is the question.
