New rim VS new rear wheel.

New rim VS new rear wheel.

Hello,

        I have a Raleigh M-400 that I bought last May and has about 500
off-road miles on it. The rear rim is a Weinmann ZAC 19, (not too happy
with it) I'm still novice but ride kind of hard and fast. I weigh about
180 and everytime I get done riding I have to true the rim back up. Well
I'm pretty much fed up with it. Besides, it's pretty tweaked out. So now
my query: Would it be cheaper to just buy a new rear wheel or get a rim
(Sun Rhyno Lite) and have it laced up by my LBS. It seems to me that the
cost difference is nominal. Let's face it, wheel sets are EXPENSIVE.
Actually I'd like a set of Cane Creek WAM's but that't down the road
yet.....

TIA,
Al
