    You can't buy a new rear wheel with tyre and cassettes fitted. This will require separate purchases.

    You could try eBay and you may find a second hand wheel being sold this way.

    You need to know what internal rim width you need that will take a 2.3" tyre.
    This will help:

    Read it all by all means, but make sure that you page down to the the chart labelled "mountain"

    Buy an MTB 27.5" quick release rear wheel with centre lock rotor mount with Shimano freehub.

    Buy an MTB 27.5" 2.3" wide tyre.

    Buy a Shimano 8 speed cassette to fit on the wheel hub.

    So you want someone else to find items and check if in stock for you instead of doing it yourself?

    You probably know already - Hubs will usually be 10, 11,... and you can add spacers if you are running a narrower cassette.

    Yes, you did ask for those parts to be included. At least that is the way the question is phrased.

    So you just want a bog standard center lock rear wheel with qr. Just do a search on line. There are loads available. Probably easiest to search for what you already have - make and model.

    Make sure you get the correct width hub.

    Not the best way to encourage people to help.

    Your questions are pretty woolly and meaningless, you know the specs you need, so its probably best to find something and then come back and check its OK.

    Right now your after more buying advice than workshop/tech.
