I ordered a set of "built" wheels from White Brothers and expected them to have the spline drive nipples....but NOOOOOO...they came with regular nipples. From what I've researched about spline drive nipples is that it's difficult to NOT damage them from over tightening. The threads become the weak point. These nipples are not any stronger than typical nipples...they are sinply more resistant to rounding off.
