Aluminum or steel wheels?

I am getting close to needing my first set of tires. I would like to go with 14 inch aluminum wheels. But... I have bent the lip of my factory steel wheels, (not to the point of losing air), on three of the four factory wheels. Am I asking four trouble going to aluminum. I usually just do trail riding. Nothing major except for the occasional rocks. I know alot of you have aluminum. Has anyone regretted switching? Thanks for any input.

No way, go with the aluminumm. You won't have any problems, with all the new alloys in most cases they actually hold up better.
