Default Re: Strengenthing my new cruiser

Somebody recommended aluminum wheels earlier, from my understanding, rim brakes will eventually wear down your rims, and aluminum wears much faster than steel, and given that one would expect to brake more after attaching a motor (higher speeds more braking) wouldn't aluminum wheels be a bad idea with rim brakes on these things? Not looking for a fight like MTB vs Cruiser just looking wondering....
