I'm looking to replace the DT Swiss wheelset on my new Canyon Aeroad to give it a more 'custom' look with wheels that have white decals. However I cannot make a choice between two weelsets:

Zipp 404 DISC (1599 euro)
https://www.futurumshop.nl/zipp-404-tub ... -wit.phtml

HED JET PLUS DISC (JET6)
https://store.hedcycling.com/jet-plus-disc-brake/

There is a local retailer over here which can give a discount on the HED wheel's. The Jet 6 will be arround 1300 euro's.

I have the stealth black Aeroad with the following specs:

Which set would you guys pick for a Canyon Aeroad?

I wonder if it's worth holding onto what you have a bit longer and then getting the HED Vanquish. 21c internal is same as the Jet but 30mm external is far better for aero profile with up to 28mm (actual width) tires. Whereas the Jet needs <24mm actual width tires for optimal aero and the Zipp wheels could use 23c non-4000Sii tires up to around 25mm actual width with their slightly narrower internal and 26.x external widths while staying within the 105% rule parameters.
