Rims

What would be a better choice in rims. Primo Hoola Hoops or Odyssey Duralectras? I do NOT care about weight. So I don't want these weight freaks answering "get the duralectras it will save 6 ounces". I am woundering what rims are stronger. If the Duralectras are stronger is it still worth paying 30$ more per rim to get them? Thanks for your help.

Yeah I would go with the hula hoops. Don't skimp on the rims,the hoola hoops have been very reliable for me. My friend had gotten those duralectras and they bent and chipped after a few days of shreddin.

get the primo because the duralectra is the same exact rim as the hazzard lite just with the duralectra coating, (the hazzard lite is weaker than a hula hoop)

assumming they are all going to be the same hole count its either the big city or the midway being the strongest. i am not 100 percent sure about the big city being stronger than the midway or not but i have heard that the midway was noticibly stronger and more resistente to dents than a hula hoop
