Rims are part of the system. With a good set of wheels that are handbuilt with high quality parts, heavier duty spokes that are properly tensioned and stress relieved they can handle serious weight generally. It doesn't sound like you will be overloading things too much so I wouldn't worry a whole lot. Check the wheels with regularity and make sure they are true and if using rim brakes make sure the brake track isn't worn and you should be decent. Also don't forget about doing maintenance on the hubs every once and while.
