I'm looking to upgrade the stock wheelsets ( Alexrims TD-17 / Formula Hubs). On ebay, Vuelta wheelsets keep popping up. I've never heard of them but they look pretty decent and they're really cheap. Are these complete garbage or are they worth looking into?

Can anyone recomend a good wheelset that would be an upgrade for me without breaking the bank?

If you want to go tubeless they are a slight upgrade. Otherwise they are a sideways move.

It is a good deal with the tires. They never sold "IN BICYCLE SHOPS FOR $600 TO $800 A PAIR." More like $250-300. They use Shimano Deore hubs which retail for less than $75 a pair. The 2000g weight is reasonable but far from light for a high-end wheelset.
