When we had SMB build our van we had Pro-Comp, Series 97 Steel wheels installed. I went with steel for several reasons one was cost, less than $100 versus $200+ per wheel. Second and most important is that if you hit a rock on a trail with an aluminum wheel there is a chance it may crack where a steel wheel will bend. If you are in a remote location you can hammer a steel wheel back into a usable condition where an aluminum wheel once bent there is no saving it. I initially though weight would be an issue but the steel wheel only weighed 3 lbs more than the cast aluminum wheel of the same design.
I also like the look of the wheel.
The pro comp wheel are made in
and are powder coated not painted and they have a very good reputation. The only negative is the plating on the center caps for the rear is not very good and after 2 years they are already starring to rust a little.
