JB importers has weinmann 519 rims drilled for 48 spokes. I have never had any problems with these rims they also wear well from the brakes.

Not having any experience with Weinmann rims since the 70's (700c concave rims) I decided to read some reviews. Here's what I saw:

Most of the rims I've used have been the Araya VP 20 the Weinmann 519 or noname copies none of these rims have ever failed. I put 20000 miles on one rim just to see what was possible. https://share.ovi.com/media/currentre...resident.10016 I build zerodish wheels with 36 spokes the back carries 165 pounds. You should be able to load a 48 hole Weinmann rim to 220 pounds and expect it to last 20000 miles that is if you don't wear it out from breaking and you keep the speed down. The Weinmann rim is available everywhere I tried to order the Fir rims that Santana uses and was unable to do so. I do know the Fir's would cost 40 to 60 dollars each rather than the 20 dollars the Weinmann cost. The Weinmann concave rim was a good idea however they made them a bit too this and there were a bunch of spoke pull throughs like the Mavics have. I'm building a rear wheel with zerodish and 32 holes to see if I can break it It will use Wheelsmith DH spokes and A shimano large flange hub.
