Newbie looking for advice on Alex Ace 17 rims

Just wondering if anyone has any advice on Alex Ace 17rims with Shimano LX M585 hubs to replace a set of Alex DM 24 (too heavy). I have done some searching on the web but can't find any reviews. I am 95kgs and on a wife imposed budget and have found a set for about $170 but wondering if I should be looking at something else that may be better value

Howdy,
The weight you save on rims at that price point will be limited, you are better off spending your bucks on lighter tyres. You can save up to 400g per wheel, which in real terms is the same as spend 2K on rims, with added handling as a bonus.
