We second the motion of Velocity rims (ours are Aeroheads, 32H front 36H rear) with Chris King hubs. Our team weight is rather light: a tad under 250 lbs.
In over 30,000 miles on our c/f tandem have replaced rear rim twice.
Another wheelset to look into would be Topolino; have them on my single bike and love them. After 10,000+ miles have not yet had an issue or needed to even true them. They do make a tandem specific wheelset.
Am familiar with Flemish cobblestones as I was born/raised in West Vlaanderen.
Let's face it, while de Ronde features lots of cobbles there are better stretches of road in Belgium!
Try riding some of the cobbles on your Rolfs . . . you be the judge!
Pedal on!
