650b rim choices

I would like to pick up some rims and reuse my hubs for my 650b SS conversion. I would love some HED or similar but cannot really justify the $.

What tubeless compatible 659b wheels for use with 38-42c tires are not a pain in the butt to install tires and won’t cost more than the bike they are going on???

Velocity...go to website and select that size under ‘sizes’. Great rims, US made, not expensive.

Rim brake or no?

If 32h works I have some low mile Velocity Blunt SL takeoffs I'd let go cheap?
