XT (FH-M8010), Ultegra (FH-RS770)? Bitex? DT comes with aluminum freehub, correct? Have to buy steel separate ($50+)?

Chris King and WI are not on my list, I have experience.

More money typically means lighter weight (Onyx excepted), maybe ceramic bearings and blingier, but not necessarily better, right?
Tandem, 320 POUNDS?? 32h?? Hmm..not my first choice...

No, not a tandem. Just me and my touring bike all loaded (maybe overloaded) up. 280 is probably more realistic. I started this wheel path before doing the weight math and I see your point, but 36h 650b rims are painfully hard to come by outside Velocity.

True. If it were me I'd consider a carbon mtb rim like Nox Teocalli/Farlow or similar. You get a very strong rim that is suitable in 32h for your needs. Any impact that will crack that rim under touring conditions will do a lot worse to the rest of the bike.

I have their Skyline in 32h for my gravel bike and have ridden over some crazy roads at high speeds. Very confidence inspiring.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'm such a Luddite rim brake guy I hadn't considered carbon fiber. There are quite a few nice options out there.

A strong enough alloy rim in 32h will be a boat anchor in comparison
