For me it's been pretty simple: since I switched to carbon rims 8 or so years ago, my wheels became something that I pretty much never worry about. Granted, I haven't been on the same set that whole time (sold and purchased a few different sets) but I haven't ruined (or spent time truing) a rim since. I've found them to be far more durable and problem free. Before that, I was replacing alloy rims a couple times a year. Factor in the prevelant lifetime warranties, and if you can get a decent price, it's worth it to me. If they are lighter, that's just a bonus. I also personally like the feel of a carbon wheel, but that could just be in my head or personal preference.
