Installing set of coat hooks in drywall w/ steel studs
 
I'm installing a set of coat hooks (cedar wood) into drywall with steel studs. Do I need to drill directly into the metal studs in order to support the weight of the coats? The package came with drywall anchors, not sure if that's a good idea.

If it came with anchors there going to be some cheap ones.
A coat rack has to hold a lot of weight. With outwood studs I'm not seeing a great outcome on this one.
May want to concider dry wall adhesive on the back side and fine thread sheetock screws in the studs.
