Radenergie R20 or Maya STM?

I found this two wheels from ebay, they are Radenergie R20 and Maya STM. They both from the same seller. I think i can get some discount by making some offers. Which one should I get? Radenergie is little over my budget. I like the R10 best, but R20 is cheaper. Maya is nice but I heard they are not very stong. Is this ture?

I must be from another planet, because you're the 100th person I have heard say they like the R10 better than R20, yet still, I prefer the look of the R20's. I don't like being able to "see into the wheel" to the break pad ... that the R10 causes. It seems too sparse. The R20's seem to have a more of a complete look, and remind me more of the old school BMW rims than the 10's do ... just me though. Maybe if I saw the 20's on a car I'd change my tune... but as for now, this is the closest STYLE rim I could find, and it looks spectacular on the 6er ...



So - Ive decided on the R20's ... even though I know I have to avoid potholes

I'd go with the Rad R20's. I think the R10's are an awfully ugly wheel and i don't understand how someone could put R10's on their 6er

Rad 10/20 both are good choices.

Obviously the RAD 20 will be more difficult to keep clean.

I recommend aluminum with chrome lip.

That would be a real bummer to pay $4k for new wheels.

Then have a wheel get damaged a few months later and not be able to get a replacement.

Also, I posted this elsewhere.

you can only get runflats in 17"-19" wheel sizes.
