    As above. Budget £350-ish. 32mm tubeless tyre compatible would be ideal.

    Any recommendations?

    No experience of them but considered as replacement wheels; spec not right so didn’t proceed.
    The brand have a good name.
    Check on-line reviews.
    On sale at c50% off which brings them inside your target price.

    Those wheels are through axle. Hunt do wheelsets in the OP’s price range with QR adapters. They get good reviews.

    Mason X Hunt 4 seasons either in the road or gravel spec would do the job within budget. Come pre tubeless taped with valves and are pretty light for the money.

    Ta. I thought I’d been left behind with QR, but Hunts or Hopes sound good. Cheers.

    Send Mark at Spokesman wheels an email with your budget and requirements.

    You should be able to get some nice handbuilt wheels for that money. Rims such as H Plus Son Hydra or Kinlin. Novatec or Miche hubs.

    Malcolm at the Cycle Clinic is also recommended.

    There’s JRA and Scribe wheels as well, all similar budget wise to hunt

    Prime Race from Wiggle, spend the 150 change on coke and hookers

    I’m not entirely happy with my Spokesman wheelset: after multiple broken spokes I had the rear wheel rebuilt.

    Dt Swiss. Either E1800 or C1800 spline. Have both, E on winter road bike and C on gravel bike. Bought as a pair they come with qr and thru axle adaptors, set of tubeless valves and cons ready taped. Both set went up tubeless with a track pump.
    Running 28c on the E and pretty sure a 32c would be nice shape on it. Both sets have great road feel.

    +1 for a hand built set. Spa Cycles in Harrogate did me a set for my winter bike (onLX hubs but all kinds of options) and they are tough and go just as quick as my summer wheels.

    Mavic Open Pro (new versions) with something like a Miche hub will come in a £250 ish. Perfect

    Mavic all road come in around £250 too. I got a rear a few weeks ago running tubeless, seems good to me.

    I’ve got some Novatec CXD wheels. Seem light, but durable.
