Hi. I am a big boy too. All those frames can easily take your weight. Ride the wheels a month or so then have them re-trued. That should extend their life a fair amount. Depending on how you ride and how careful you are with curbs and potholes they may last quite a while with a truing every 6 months or so. Eventually you'll probably want a set of hand made wheels with at least 32 spokes - much stronger and ride smoother to boot than machine-made factory wheels. But that can wait until you get your money's worth from the factory wheels.
