A 36 spoke, box rim will be pretty strong. A 36 spoke deep V type rim will be even stronger, but heavier. Of course, the real determinant of strength is the wheel build itself. You might try a slightly wider rim. Open Pros are pretty narrow. DRC make a 17mm wide rim, which is just right for 32mm tyres, or you could consider the Mavic A319 previously mentioned. I used these until I broke my front hub.. now I am using Vuelta Typhoon rims.
