Angry Back wheel assembly

Hi, I bought a motorized beach cruiser , 4 stroke, gas only from ez cruiser in Dana point California . They suck! I can tell you stories about how bad this bike is falling apart with only about 25 miles on it.
Any way, I have a question for anyone, the bike back tire keeps going out of "true" , I have had it trued now a seconded time and the bike shop mech who I trust said that the spokes are 14 gauge , which is standard cheap beach cruiser, he said I need probably 10 gauge spokes to handle the torch from the motor and the rider weight. He is trying to find me a rim like that, this will cost at least 60+ dollars. Has anyone else had this problem? What type of rim should be used? Why do they use a rim they know will tweak, and be useless?
