How about Ax-Lightness Ultra 25 Tubs? Better than Enve 2.2 Tubs with ceramic hubs?
Way better than 2.2's but your initial post suggested Shimagnolo so I'm not sure if you're worth saving

If i had a healthy budget for a dream bike right now, it would be the evo with mechanical SR and bora 35. Electric and/or discs woulf be wonderful too but the total for a highend bike would be ridiculous, i'll never have that kind of money

35mm carbon rims do make sense as such wheels are stiffer than shallower rimmed wheels given the same spoke count.
