I'm thinking of buying new spokes and rim from TToem and having a shop lace them up for me using the original hub? This should only cost 200$ + shop labor.
What are the other options? Where do you buy a complete excel wheel?

Your only hope is to check and tighten your new spokes on your new rim so that the new rim will live a long happy life.
Check them every ride for the first three rides then check them periodically after that.

I will be sticking with the caveman method since I would rather have new tires.
Put a drop of lube on the spoke treads/ nipple this will allow the nipple to spin free (for a while) eventully the nipple will seize with rust and dirt. When this happens the spoke will just twist making it difficult to maintain and impossible to get a good torque reading.
