Replace aluminum wheels with steel

I had 2 tires blow on my last trip out. It currently is in the body shop getting fixed up.

My camper is a Eagle Touring Edition and has the brown/tan/black look to it. The wheels are aluminum with black trim. 3 of the 4 were scuffed pretty bad from the blowouts. The wheels on my unit are not available anymore. How would black steel wheels look on this unit? Has anybody changed and have a picture they would like to share?

I am also going to upgrade the tires to 10 ply. No more d-rated tires for me.

If your upgrading your tires and going with new steel rims, confirm that the rims are rated for your upgraded tires.

That is one of the reasons I was also thinking of the steel wheels.

These are the steel wheels that I purchased after doing a lot of searching when upgrading to Sailun tires last summer. I also purchased their center caps and forged steel lug nuts. I am very pleased with them.

Not sure I could do 16" wheels and tires, the space seems limited to the floor. I would like black in that though.
