i had steel wheels and hated them. They are heavy, they're hard to balance, and the runout is horrible compared to machined aluminum/alloy wheels. I ditched 100lbs from my rig by switching from 31" tires on 16" wheels to 33x12.50R15's on Procomp aluminum wheels (which I got on craigslist for a whole lot less than new). I also ran Spidertrax wheel spacers for a while with stock wheels...problem is no tire shop will touch a vehicle with wheel spacers on it due to liability, so I had to remove the wheels and take them in to have them balanced. That ment I needed a 2nd set of tires/wheels, or I needed to remove the wheel spacers every time I wanted Discount to rotate or balance the tires...huge PITA.
