Wheels for the heavier cyclist

Hi,

I have a cycling friend who is on the heavy side (210 Kilos) and as you might expect, he is having serious problems withe spokes breaking and coming loose on his road bike. He thought graveI bike wheels might be better, I suggested tandem wheels might be the answer but don't know enough to advise.

Can anyone suggest what wheels might support someone this heavy which would fit on a road bike?

Thanks,

Ian
