I used to use trashed aluminum rims to save money. Tuning the spokes to straighten the rim led to unequal spoke tension, of course. Then bumps and potholes, with the uneven spoke tension, would gradually straighten the rim. Then the unequal spoke tension would need equalizing. Worked for me, (with a lot of spoke adjustments to keep rim braking working OK.)
