Default Drop center rim strength

Hi, I ordered a pair of s-2 knock offs built iin the 80's from Bicyclebones.They sent me a set of knock off drop center rims buit in the 80's instead.I am concerned about strength with th drop center rims.It would not be that big of a deal if they were made in the 40's when they were buit to last.My other concern is spoke length I have a 90mm Sturmey going on the front and between that hub flandge and the rise in the drop center rim I do not know if I will be able to find 12g spokes in that short of a length?? Let me know what you thiink...thanx

With in an hour Bicyclebones contacted me and r sending out a prepaid return postage lable and the correct set of rims...great people!I sure do like the way the drop center rims look.
