(the number is QBP's PN).. those look to be a $200 'touring' wheelset. near as I can tell, Handspun is a QBP house brand for machine made wheels with a range of decent components, obviously these are at the lower end, but last I heard, Deore LX was OK stuff, as are Mavic rims (the A319 are a pinned 6106 alloy box 622x19 rim, recommended for 28 to 47mm tires, so my target range of 32-35mm should be fine... and if I get skinny and start riding farther, I can even put 28s on them).
That is a SOLID wheelset if they are built well.
LX is great stuff and A319's are good tough rims.
This would be a pretty typical budget (but still good) wheel for a loaded tourer around 200lbs rider weight.
