do the teeth on the alloy pulley wheels last longer than the stock plastic ones? my stock ones are worn out. wondering if I should get alloy ones.

yes, they do. They also make a lot more noise.
For how long plastic ones last, how easy they are to change, and how cheap they are, I'll never get another set of metal pulleys.

ok, thanks. if they are much louder then I'll stick with the plastic ones. both types seem to cost about the same, unless I'm looking at crappy alloy ones.

I switched to alloy ones and now every time I hit some rough there is so much jingling going on back there I keep checking my bike for something loose..

If you want to upgrade the plastic once try to find ones with bearings instead of bushings in them.
