do ya think spoked wheels would be more durable than the stoke ones on Wee's? should i consider changing them for my trip? or not ness. consider heavy load and bad roads.

Not really. And goodluck finding spoked wheels for the Strom. You have some custom work ahead of you.

Can be done - BUT I've seen a stock spoked wheel on KTM 990's destroyed by an impact that only put a small ding in my DL 650 rim.

We both hit the same washed out culvert at speed - if anything I was going faster (since *cough* the 990 rider was trying to catch me).

Putting a tire like TKC-80's on, and keeping pressures reasonable is going to be more effective.
