I'm closer to 170 pounds and commute with books etc on 32 hole Mavic MA3's and haven't had any trouble. I think it is worth the time (do it yourself) or money (find someone really good) to make sure the wheels are well built. In my experience, the quality of the build is key... assuming the parts are of reasonable quality as dobber mentioned.
