You didn't say what type of gearing (modern or threaded cassette) you have, but, these are fairly inexpensive:
Black Velocity 36H
Black Mavic 36H
Silver Mavic 36H
Fulcrum Racing 7 at $249
Velocity Chukker are really strong, but, mostly SS.

what tire sizes to cx riders run? ah,k, the fulcrom 7 cx says up to 35c.
I'd say 15mm.
High-end, racing wheels will be ~13mm. Cyclocross and commuter wheels will be 15-18mm. 29er MTB wheels will be ~20mm.
I've run 40mm, on my Tricross (16mm). But, I've seen a 50mm, 29er MTB tire on a Tricross, too.
