    A little of this and a little of that.
    It's worth it to me to have alloys. I believe it depends on if you're planning to go with aftermarket wheels anytime soon.

    I'd say hell no... you can get a set of take offs for less than that with tires. Someone on here the other day was selling 20" Limiteds with tires for $500 I think? If the steelies are 18s then you could buy a set of TRDs or TRD Pros and swap your own tires... TRD Pros may be more than $900 but the base TRDs sell for much less than $900...

    The TRD offroad wheels or the Pro wheels are worth it. If you eventually upgrade to aftermarket, those are easy to sell. The other ones are not as easy to sell.

    Resale on the alloys is roughly worth $600 if you sell them with 50%+ tread life. I think the steels are half with tires.

    I was thinking of aftermarket rims for winter tires - to easily swap. I do like the looks of the TRD rims. There are lots of after market rims that look good (for as low as $135/) - guess that sort of answers my question.

    If you're planning to go aftermarket, get steelies, if you like tundra style rims, you can easily get some off craigslist or on this marketplace for cheaper.

    All about what your plans are and whether you want to pay for convenience.

    On the other hand swapping tires, balance and alignment would come to roughly the same price including cost of lower priced wheels. Kind of a gamble.

    Problem is most of these trucks come with the $900 wheel package. I tried to get them to take it off but nope they won't do it. Pisses me off paying for a set of wheels I hate and that will get replaced asap.
