Lesson time, kids...just because you run it and it hasn't broken (yet) doesn't make it the lightest, strongest, best, blah blah blah. BMXers suffer from several pervasive delusions, among them being the tendency to give praise where it isn't necessarily due simply because you or someone you know rides a particular stem, frame, wheelset, bar, tire, headset, crankset...
As mentioned multiple times TODAY, Hazard Lite rims are relatively strong but that certainly is *not* their biggest selling point. Go read reviews, go talk to people who have gone through a number of wheelsets, go talk to mechanics who are replacing these things frequently.
