Steel wheels are generally speaking the cheap stuff. Do you have hubcaps? If so, probably steel wheels behind them. Aluminium wheels are generally the more expensive and nicer looking. Steel wheels are very durable.

Yes, Bob. I have simple stock wheels with removeable hubcaps. Thanks for your help.

Main advantage of steel wheels is that they are much cheaper and comprise of all the elementary features of an ideal wheel. However we know consumers are more likely to have advance and gleaming wheels rather than traditional. Alloy wheels as available at are very good option and withstand fit in this prospect. I don’t say alloy wheels are best or steel because both have their own significance and use. If you have steel wheels then there is no need to be worry that too run longer and performs well.
