I am once again using my 93 RM Wagon as the daily driver. Now that I'm using the car for work, I am in the process of pulling the wood grain, debadging, paint and wheels. I am stongly considering 20" Coys. I've had trouble in the past with bending larger diameter cast and alloy wheels. How strong are Coys? I'm told that the are fairly stout. Your thoughts and expreiences?

No Asian built wheel is any stronger than the other. Coy's, Boss, AR, whatever, nowadays just about all cast wheels come from Asia.

You'll do better to pay attention to how much sidewall you run. Avoid the avoind the 255/35r20's that everyone runs and get some sidewall, like the 245/45r20's that the DCX R/T and SRT-8 cars run. they're not expensive, and give your rims added protection.

I had coys on my chevelle and didn't have any problems. If you like that muscle car look, coys are good bang for your buck IMO.

Make sure you check the load rating of the tire. You are looking at some pretty squatty tires on 20's.
The volume of air the tire holds is a large part of the load rating. I didn't want LT tires on our 1500 suburban we tow with, I found 275/60/16 that had almost the same load capacity as a 245/75/16 LT tire.

I always wanted the Coys myself. But I read alot of problems with the finshes of the rims! So I went another route

I also run 20" wheels and use 245/45/ZR20 tires.

After looking at your car domain page, I'd say the 245/45's are perfect!

Don't forget the Boss 338's and the Vision 142's. Both look similar, cost less, and are made by more reputable companies. Coys has some serious customer service issues.
