Thanks Eric, The first thing you need is a Shimano SM-AX58 thru axle. There are other Shimano axles, and even some OE axles, that fit but this is recommended as the final lever position is adjustable. That's what I'm running and it works great. For wheels there are a lot of options and it can be hard to claim a best value because of world wide price fluctuations, clearouts etc. With my caveats out of the way, I'm currently testing a RaceFace Aeffect wheelset with 30mm internal rims and I'd definitely recommend checking them out.  They use a proven reliable Formula freehub with a reasonable 10-degree of engagement and the RaceFace/Easton <span style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">rims are proven reliable. </span> <span style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">Value wise the wheels include extra spokes and come taped for tubeless with valves installed. </span> Not light but not heavy. Not cheap but not boutique.  Cheers,
