First off, before Raiyn gets nasty with you, it's agains't forum rules to use "Aol'ese"(u in stead of you, 2 instead of to/too, etc.)
But welcome to the forum!
The Sun Rynolites are good rims are pretty cheap. They usually come laced to an LX/XT hub. Also, what spoke count are you using right now? If your already using 36h rims then you might want to try and get a pair of 40h tandem wheels.
If you mess up the tandem wheels, I don't know what to tell you...

Thanks alot for the advice guys!!
Welcome to the forums. I'm just going to move this into the introductions forum.
Nah. On second thought, if you could post a fuller intro in the Introductions forum, that would be great. You sound like a mtb'er or something like that. I don't think the General Cycling forum quite fit what you need...

If you wanted to run 24's, you could probably find some double wall 48-spoke 24" rims. The Alex '303' is one rim you could look for, it's on one of DK's 24" bikes.
