    Are you speaking of OEM steel wheels? I have the OEM 'styled' steel wheels on my truck and they work pretty damn well. So does quite a few others out there. 2x4 and 4x4 6 luggers.

    Look around in the buy/sell/trade forum. There are usually some in there for cheap. Also, I see them on craigslist quite a bit.

    I'm not sure about the pro comp steelies. Maybe someone else cna chime in on it.

    Probably the backspacing on the procomps rubs on the calipers. Do you know the backspacing for the procomps?
