I am looking for a pair of wheelset with a budget of around $250. It has to be reasonably light (Less than 1.7kg) and spins well, anyone got any suggestion?

I only got in mind:
Planet-X Model B Alloy Wheelset (Fr: 705g + Rr: 948g) ~$150

I disagree with the Neuvation suggestion. Had a rear wheel taco out on me, lucky to be alive. Great replacement service but for what.
IMHO, their wheels are flexy and weak.

Better suggestion is the
The Easton EA-50 Wheelset 249.99

Make sure and check out the great reviews on the Eastons at Performance.

Fuzionwheels.com Unbelievably good wheels for 175.00. My 190lbs have about 2k miles on them with zero problems.
Not the lightest (heavy hubs) but the rim is light so they feel snappy. Roll super smooth too. I like them better than my 105 wheelset.
For training or general use, I highly recomend.

Really? They are Kinlin rims built up with sapim spokes, pretty much the same as everything else out there. Now if you’re a Clydesdale on a low spoke high tension rim, you might crack a hub flange or something, but there is nothing unique to those wheels that would cause them to perform any differently than anything else of similar design.
