I like Yokomo 24mm yellow persision dish rims. Very strong and SUPER stiff. They spin very true as well.

I had been using the super hard orion JB rims. I liked the smoke gray look and they are strong too.

The Atlas rims imported by Integy. 5 spoke. Durable and run straight.

speedmind rims most of the time, i can reuse the rims when the tires wear down. after boiling the rims and cleaning up the remaining rubber with a hobby knife, i can mount new tires as my practice set.

Don't know if it's the rims or the tyres but I mounted some ING tyres on rev-lite rims and they are so far out of balance the whole car vibrates!!
