Rule-of-thumb for tapped hole wall thickness is 3x thread depth, so for 5x0.8 he'll need about a 10mm web thickness. If he uses 4x.07 that comes down to about 8mm.

Just noticed on a pair of rims - Weinmann 27x 1 1/4" - that the welded joint is not opposite the valve hole; they're both 36 hole rims; one has 16 spokes from joint to hole, one has 9.

Dammit.
