weight reduction, wheels.

What are a decent brand wheels that are fairly inexpensive to reduce weight but still support a 200+ lb person?

It does have a 37-622 on the tire. The current tires are vittoria tires. They are just old and warn, and it seems like a good time to switch them to smaller thickness if I can.
