How can I tell if a set of wheel is aluminum vs. steel? I am trying to get a set on craigslist, but I am not certain if there is a stamp?

I was training a guy on what dismount and mount tire bar to use on aluminum wheels. I told him that aluminum will make your tongue tingle if you licked it . Steel just tastes bad. You could try that.










He licked the wheel!

Hit it with a hammer. Steel has a more metallic sound. You may have to hit it hard.

PY0 = aluminum. Other wheels are steel, plated or not. PY0's also have a different lug nut cover.
