Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Stretch that budget out a bit and get some Open Pro/Ultegra 6600's.

As much wheel as almost anyone could ever need.

Otherwise, I would look for some Easton Vista SL's.
Ten tenths.

Eastons are usually the best bang for your buck. I'd probably recommend the the EA50's, they are about $100 -200 above your price range. If you have a bike with wheels, spending 150 bucks on new ones isn't going to get you anything (unless you complete ****ed up your old one's). The only time where there is an advantage to a different wheel is if you drop atleast 500-600. Wheels with logo's are usually frowned upon. Most people I know, and most people on this forum (I can't speak for all) usually take the logo's off or atleast take 1/2 of the logo's off. Don't buy a wheel for a logo, not worth the money. If you are so inclined to get a wheel with a logo, buy a cheap logo and go on ebay and buy some zipp logo that someone took off their set. Further, the one's with the logos are deep dish, which are not ideal for recreational riding and climbing. Nor can you get a deep dish wheel for the price your looking at.
