    I just spent the last hour searching google and here for the answer and can't find it. I know someone had to have asked and this is probably very basic knowledge. But how the hell do I tell if my stock wheels are alloy or steel?

    The ones that came on your truck (base model access cab 4cyl) are probably steel

    Shit I read this after I got back from physical therapy. Its the only time during the week where I use my truck. I live on campus so I have to park it far away. My next appointment is thurday morning so I'll try then. From the VERY helpful pics FoxySandChick posted, they do not look like the alloys she posted. However the steel doesn't look right, maybe just cuz I have never seen them without tires or lugs/centercaps. So they could very well be the steelies, i just can't picture them. Thanks for the pics Foxy!

    Do you still have the window sticker? VIN# handy? Look on the sticker or call the dealer with the VIN#. You can do that from the comfort of your chair.

    That is them! Now I need to decide if I want to keep them for offroading or if I want to sell them and use my new 17" alloys for everything...
