Quality Rim Manufacturers (robust)

I'm looking to get a set of rims for my winter setup and I've heard a lot of horror stories of bent rims. What brands would you suggest for strong and robust rims?

Are ASA any good?

My ASA winters are used and are about 3 yrs old. There is no vibration or dents to speak of.

if you are worried, buy forged rims. they are much stronger.

What's wrong with stock wheels for winters?

There's nothing wrong with stock wheels for winters. I just don't want to waste my current tires on the stock wheels. They're basically new.

Any other brands you guys suggest?

I've only basically heard of a few reputable brands like

BBS
HRE
OZ (is this the same company as OZ racing) because I see on tire rack there's distinction between the two.

Only mentioned it because he was talking about reputable brands previously, I wasn't being serious. Although someone did run 19 Neez Model7 for winter, haha. There's obviously many more "reputable" yet viable options than the listed...Works, Volks(Ray's Engineering) ... but I do agree that running BBS is a blasphemy...I destroyed my RGR's finish last winter, but my CK's manage to survive 2 winters, ended up being flawless

I was simply asking for suggestion of brands that manufacturer strong and robust rims. I don't plan on buying BBS, HRE or OZ for winters exactly because it's too expensive to waste on winters. Hence, why I want to know if anybody else has experience with other reputable brands that make strong and robust wheels for a little less money. Doesn't have to be very nice looking, just strong and robust.
