I'd go for Hope hubs with the best rims you can afford.

We can't answer your question properly without knowing how much you weigh?

 

Or if you ride mostly smooth dirt roads, or real gnarly trails...

Hope pro II hubs

ZTR Crest

DT swiss spokes

Brass niples

 

Good to go....just don't spoil them with a 1kg tyre on each side

 

I like the Hope Hubs,

 

what do you think of Tune hubs

King and Kong....light, dunno about durable though.

 

Like the other okes pointed out, you are looking for the holy grail of wheels. So rather look at something that is enough of everything

 

Cheap enough

Light enough

Strong enough

 

You are dun, so I would consider the AM classics race. If you want to stick to ZTR, you can consider the ZTR race gold's. What is your budget?
