Steel vs Aluminum Rims

I know this topic comes up a lot, but looks and rust resistance aside, is there any real practical advantage to aluminum wheels over steel wheels?

Specifically, does the weight savings of an aluminum rim have any real world advantages?

Forgot to mention that I am specifically talking about trailer rims and not trucks. Although I am sure there are similar reasons for both.
