^^^ Agree. Good wheels last longer, stay "true" longer, take more abuse, etc. Look at it this way, you can either buy a $40 wheel, break it, and need another $40 wheel (and break it again) or you can buy an $80 wheel and have it last 2x, 3x, maybe 4-10x longer. In the long run the pricey wheel is cheaper*.
* To a point. There is a trade off point where you aren't getting more reliability for your money, but I don't know where that is. $100? $300? $500?
