    I true my wheels when they need truing, which, given a well built wheel, is infrequently. I "tweek" only the spokes involved in pulling the section of rim that's out of true, back into true. Unless you know what you're doing, and know that you have a wheel with low spoke tensions all around, I would not recommend tightening all the spokes just to make them all tighter.
