I'm looking for a new wheelset for my Tallboy LTC. Currently running DT 350 hubs and WTB I23 rims. This combo held up well for a season of riding, but looking to lose some weight and maybe gain some stiffness.

I ride in the northeast, think lots of rock gardens. I weigh around 210 geared up and classify my riding as light am. Nothing huge 4-6ft drops and jumps. I do some lift served on occasion. Looking for a strong, durable, and reasonably light weight wheelset. Looking for a inner rim diameter of at least 21 and looking to setup tubeless. 15mm upfront 12X142 rear.

Budget is around $1000, Give or take. Possible wheelsets based on reviews: American Classic All mountain, E13 TRs, Charger pro sl, or go with a custom build?

Lighter and stiffer than i23's...probably looking at carbon rims.

Light Bicycle AM 29er rims with Hope Pro 2 hubs run about $800. They come with Pillar bladed spokes (Pillar are very high quality Taiwan made spokes) and alloy nipples. Should weigh under 1600g.
