DUH. Realized that now. lol
I'm not uber-hard on my wheels, but I did take a curb by accident one time and I know that a single wall aluminum wheel would have perished. lol

Hadn't thought about cleaning them. I'll use alcohol. Seems to work better than degreaser in my experience. Thought about a 24in wheel. Got a bike with one, but brakes are an issue at that point.
