Default aluminum pulleys

it looks really nice but according to many, these parts can easily break your belts in the long run. the more your run them the more they will get sharpened and cut your belts.

what kind is more practical and long lasting to use?

Yes they can bruise your belts and wallets bad ... Ihave run about 3 gallons on my MTX3 with Al pulleys (3Racing) and they have not bruised my belts at all save for when I was running a 8.08 ratio ... that was really an absurd ratio.

will the plastic pulleys last long enough as the aluminum ones? will it be more friendly?

Aluminium pulleys are more prone to wear and self sharpening.

The tooth sharpening makes possible to strip and cut belts. Being practical in performance terms a plastic pulley should weight less, is cheaper to replace and less delicate than the aluminium counterpart.

But for the looks, the aluminium pulleys are killer and more 'eye candy'.
