I like em because they don't corrode as fast in Minnesota winters and road salt, so no air leaks. And if they do, I can pickup a set damn cheap from all you rich bast&rds swapping them out for those fancy dancy aluminum rims!

Many times for me it's not the looks of the wheel that's the problem, it's the offset and the width. I like things to be flush. Spacers are hit and miss. Steelies are heavy sometimes, I dunno about the Tunder steelies.

If you like the looks, go for it. I've seen some powder-coated ones that looked nice.

Steelie is roughly 5 lbs heavier than TRD off-road wheel. From what I read, it seems that they are not as well designed and made. Its inner lips has tendency to catch snow (which turns into ice) and throw the wheel off balance. It's lug centric. Some people find it more difficult to balance. Some speculate that it's not as round as the aluminum wheel because of a difference process of making it. In other words, it's more cheaply made. You could pick up a set of this for less than 100 bucks,

it seems that most people seem to hate the look But it's your truck and that 'most people' aren't paying for you to please their eyes.

I've gottem too. Gonna try and dip them this weekend. Wife surprised me with cans of plasti dip yesterday. Not sure she knows what she just started. Anything black will look much better.

I plan on getting mine a dark grey metallic powder coat, as close to my truck color as possible, I still pulled off over 20mpg with them on, do the extra weight hasn't hurt that

I think this is the only pic I've seen where they look pretty good though they are the other style steelie...and of course it's Jowett's truck.
