I hope you aren't into going fast. Steel wheels are much heavier than aluminum and they bend more easily (I'm speaking from experience). I suggest skipping these and finding something better in aluminum.
02 base -> 05 SRT ACR -> 96 sedan -> 99 R/T coupe -> 02 R/T -> 03 SRT

Even though you may be speaking from experience, Aluminum wheels are much more likely to bend then steel wheels. Steel is much much strong than Aluminum and can withstand greater pressure before bending. This is why Circle track cars run steel wheels. Its safer and they are less likely to bend or warp.
