yes and no
if you have an awsome setup that your not planning on changing yes, and theyll save weight.
but if you change thing every ones in awhile then youll have to buy new nipples each time, (and my freind briks like 9 in one day)

Its dumb if you need a light bike to ride. I hate alloys. whenever i buy used wheels with alloy get rid of it. for one you cannot have your wheels perfectly trued because you cant tighten down alloy nips as hard as brass. and they stripp wayy to easy. ill blown em out a couple times.

idk im a small kid so it works better if my bike is light too. the oz's do matter. and its just a general rule, well at least for me, get alloy nipples. lighter and stronger.

Wroonngggg about them being stronger. sorry they are just a way for bmx companies to make money. look at any pros bike. no alloy spokes. why? They are way to much of a hassle to even bother with. they are for kids who like to have the coolest looking bikes out there but dont know how to ride.
