Whats better for Off roading?

My 2000 Jimny is currentely fitted with a set of tired looking steel wheels and want to fit some alloy wheels from a later model Jimny. As they look more asthetically pleasing.
I only plan on doing mild off roading so wonder would the wheels stand up to going off road or would it be best to buy a set of new steel wheels.

If it's just mild off roading then the alloys should be okay.  I've seen a lot of warped alloys though, so if you want to be safe and not bankrupted - then go for steels, they're cheaper to replace. Very Happy

I quite like steels look more hardcore, I have just spent the weekend rubbing down and spraying my alloys black for that hardcore look  Cool Wife's going mad there drying in the dining room and stinking the place out  Rolling Eyes
