The Strongest Rim

I tend to be quite harsh on my rims, and want to know if any one else is harsh on their rims and what rims you reckon hold up to abuse? (other than alex supra E)

In a rating from strongest to weakest would you rate these rims (assuming they have the same amount of spokes)

sun big city
sun BFR
sun 4play
sun black label
sun rhyno lite
araya super 7x
araya RB-J1
primo Hula hoop
alex supra E
alex supra E light
alex supra J
demolition
odyssey hazard light/duralectra (same rim)
odyssey 7K-A
odyssey midway

I'd recommend a Primo Hula Hoop or an Odyssey Midway if you're harsh on your wheels. The Odyssey 7KA is pretty much only for front wheel use, unless you're a racer, and the Odyssey Hazard Light/Duralectra and the Araya Super 7X are pretty much the top of the line rims to have if you're looking for something that's pretty durable, but not too heavy.

the rynolites i no are pretty much a racing rim. they're very light but they would bend quickly after some hard landings. so u dont want them unless ur racing. the bfrs are pretty light, and they're not a racing rim, but they don't look strong at all compared to some of the odyssey's.

i heard the chrome on the hula hoops is pretty crap, whats the chrome on the midways like?
a lot of people say the araya rb-j1 is better than hula hoops and big citys
