If you bought steel rims for the "strength" you purchased incorrectly.

You basically just bought an inferior product for no reason.
@corrado

Have you actually weighed the new steel wheels? Have you made the comparison? They are pretty light.

Yeah, I'll give you a reason, MONEY. The green stuff, capiche.

People have toured on aluminum rims and gotten broken spokes for decades too.

I'm glad people have lots of money to burn for extra wheels. Sure, $90 compared to $25 or wherever else, the ratio probably holds up.

Around town, it will be fine, I said camping and nothing about touring.

Too many aluminum rear wheels have broken spokes. For an emergency, I'm please with this situation.
