You don't have to spend a grand to get wider rims. The Belgian wheels from QBP are $600 and one of the best bargains around IMHO. The Velocity A23 wheelset is even less expensive.

The best benefit for me is the ability to run 80psi in the tires without the sidewalls bulging, for a more comfortable but still plenty fast ride.

As has been discussed on the forum repeatedly, light weight wheels are overrated and aerodynamics matter more. Just about everyone who rides the HED Jets loves them.
