    Replacing Shimano XT wheelset - what do you recommend?

    Looking to replace my wheelset on my 2011 Giant Trance X1, it has a 15mm front hub, tubeless ready, centerlock, 26" and the rear has a quick release, centerlock and 26" but I do not know what hub spacing specs I need for the rear wheel and quick release size (i'm thinking its a 9mm)?

    I am not looking to spend a a whole lot, but would like to see what wheelsets you guys would recommend with the same specs as the Shimano, so I would just bolt it on and be ready to ride.

    I am so confused on where to even look and what brands are reliable, etc. There are so many wheels

    Why do you want to replace them?

    They are pretty trashed, well the rear is. I am afraid to ride on them.

    Unless I can find a matching rear wheel. Shimano XT Wheels XC M775.

    Looks like I found a replacement set on eBay.

    XT is good bang for the buck value, and if you only need a new rear then there you go! Just out of curiosity, how are current wheels banged up?
