Question Does Tire Rack offer steel wheels?

I'm now thinking black steels for my winter package. Winter sucks here and black steel wheels would at least look purposeful.

I bought 16" steelie from them, but never knew they have 17" steel.... I better go check as I like the steelie better than the alloy .. I see it as waste of $ to ride alloy in snowy wiinters.

I cannot find the steel wheels on their website. What do they charge for 17" black steel wheels? What did you pay for your 16" steels? Thanks for the info!

I bought a 15" steel wheel from them for my spare tire. I could not find 16" or 17" steel wheels on the tire rack web site.

When I got my steel wheel, I spoke with a sales rep on the phone, I didn't order it on line.

We don't carry, nor have I ever seen 17" black steel wheels. I believe some dealers in Canada sell a 17" silver steel wheel, but I have no more info on that, sorry.

We do have some relatively inexpensive alloy wheels that would work well for snows (clearcoated for winter durability), which you can see here :
