With spokes that heavy the easiest part to replace, spoke, will be breaking either the hub or the rim, much more expensive parts. You need the rim and hub to be stronger than standard for that heavy a spoke. 13 gage is plenty for a bicycle rim or hub unless you are using the old Schwinn S-7 or Worksman rims and very few hubs were built that strong.
