Has anyone bought and used Atomic stainless steel rims or the chrome version, are they any good and are they worth the money?

I hadn't realised they made them to be honest. What can you say really? They look fine, but I don't think I've ever seen anybody using stainless rims, full stop.

I thought stainless rims were more prone to cracking ? might be wrong but seem to recall issues a few years ago.

Stainless is stronger but is more "brittle" (might be wrong word ?) than mild steel, the rigidity of the stainless could be a tributary factor in it developing stress cracks..................just my thoughts

Got some for a customer about a year ago, the quality of the chrome was far better than the FA Italia ones I had.
