    Despite essentially being fully-loaded my 07 Taco came with basic steel wheels. I picked up some factory alloys off Ebay and just had them put on this weekend (along with some new rubber). So now I have the steel wheels with stock Dunlop tires mounted on them. Is there any market for these? Obviously there's EBay, but I was more interested in just knowing if people had any use or interest in these. Would it be more beneficial to pull the tires off and sell separately. I could even pull the Air Pressure Sensors. Anybody have any thoughts on how to best recoup some funds?

    Sorry, let me clarify. I'm familiar with all the places to sell them. I'm really interested in getting some feedback on whether steel wheels are an item people need and if there are any suggestions for maximizing my return (i.e. pulling everything apart or keeping it together).

    I agree, but it's certainly better than no money and taking up space in the garage. Thanks for the replies.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    mine came with the alloys, but i had some nice tires and wheels to put on off my old chevy so..... i sold my alloys to my girlfriends dad (06 tacoma with steelies) and then bought his steel wheels for a set of studded winter tires. thats probably the best use for them.

    I actually see a lot of interest for the steelies in the buy sections of the diff truck forums. I think you would have no prob selling them.
