Ok, my RS80-C24 wheels are going into their 4th season and the rim wall's are badly dished (rim wear indicator long gone) and the free hub is finished. I weigh 170lbs and have rode these wheels in every month of the year, rain, snow, salt, mud, etc. I have had no issues with this wheels! Hit lots of potholes and straightened the rim and repacked the bearings a few times.

With all the research I have done the RS80's definitely seem to be working for lots of other riders also.

The online price is around $480/pair and I'm planning to order my second set but wanted to see if anyone would recommend anything else in that price range?

Thanks for any feedback!

You could also build up White Industries T11s to Kinlin XR200s. Those laced with Lasers would be under $600 and around 150 grams lighter than the RS80s.

I would like tho point out that the combination of the T11 hubs and XR200s isn't a good one. The tension ratio of the T11 requires a rim that is stiffer and can handle higher tensions.
