When it comes to wheels that need trueing... I think you're maybe comparing well built wheels vs poorly built wheels instead of carbon vs aluminum.  I've had both of each and found it had nothing to do with the material but a lot to do with the quality of the build.  Thing is, most carbon wheel sets tend to be less "mass market" and since you're spending more money, also seem to have more time spent and QC on the build. My latest aluminum wheel sets from Tairin have been faultless over almost a full season of riding.  Going to be on aluminum from Crank Brothers this year... we'll see how good their factory build is.  If it's close to how nice their boxes are, should be all good haha.
