    Intense Carbine 29c wheel set upgrade?

    I have a slightly outdated Carbine 29C and its currently on 21mm id wheels. I would like to upgrade my wheel set to something more modern that can properly run WT tires in the 2.5-2.6" range.

    This is my only bike so it gets used for everything from XC rides with the wife to lapping the lift at Deer Valley. I don't hit big jumps to often, but I do enjoy aggressive/techy downhill trails with lots of gnarly rocks. I live near Park City, UT and that is where I do 99% of my riding.

    I don't want to empty my bank account as this bike is aging and not sure how long I will hang on to it. Any suggestions?

    No, its 142mm rear. Front is also pre-boost Pike.

    I am currently making a 2.5" Minion DHF work on the front no problem. Rear is a 2.3" High Roller II and has some room to grow.

    What is your budget. Velomine has the Mavic XA with 30mm internal width for $275. They only have 24 spokes, but they are cheap.

    I was thinking up to ~$600. I ride ~4x a week so far this year. Other years have been quieter due to having a 3 year old, but I am on the bike enough to invest in a decent set, just not looking to drop $2k on a carbon wheel set.
