It might be a stupid question but is there and advantage to aluminum over steel? Or vise versa? Why do so many go to aluminum? Or is it aluminum just looks a lot nicer? Thanks.

I'm going to say there are far more options and styles with the alloys. Many/most of the wheels come with lifetime structural warranties too.

I think the reason 99% of people who put aftermarket wheels on there machine go with aluminum for cosmetics only. I went with ITP delta steel wheels with 27x12x12 GBC mud hog tires. I have the strength that steel wheels offer and the off road look I like.

Yes I did come from the other web site. I started here but it took me forever to get registered, it kept denying me saying I was a spammer. Not sure why that happened, but I finally got in today! I did notice a lot more posts on this site so I am happy I finally joined.

Like Ultratec said, the reason to go aluminum is all about un-sprung mass, or weight. You want as little un-sprung mass as possible.

Then there's looks etc etc
