Carbon wheels durability

Hello all,

I frequently cycle on rough roads, where there are many potholes and roads where expansion joints no longer have any fill material within them resulting in quite a big opening! This means I can never really avoid them all! How good in your experience are carbon wheels on poor surfaces like those mentioned above? I currently have aluminum wheels and would like to upgrade, but if carbon wheels are not very durable over poor surfaces and prone to cracking then I think I might stick with the aluminum!
