    find out the rim ERD and put the figures into a spoke calculator, including the pattern for the spokes.

    also what size hubs? and how many holes.

    From the info provided it is not possible to give you any info so have a look yourself.

    You need to find an online calculator - try the one at DT Swiss - may have pre set values.
