Changing rear steel wheels

Newbie here trying to figure out "where" to post a question … have tried couple of other places but with limited feedback … don't think the topic is that difficult. Wondering if anyone that has the 4x factory option aluminum wheels has replaced the 2x steel inner wheels with comparable aluminum wheels ? If so, what was the source of the 2x replacement aluminum wheels - Dynamax ? chassis maker ? wheel manufacturer ? Did you encounter any unexpected problems or issues installing the new aluminum wheels ( I have received 1x comment regarding "checking the stud length to compensate for thicker aluminum wheels" ) ? Any problems or issues afterwards with the new inner aluminum wheels ? Thanks again for your feedback.

Most will not change those inner wheels due to the amount of damage that happens to the wheel surface in those inner rim areas. The road grit and rock pelting will destroy an expensive set of aluminum rims and they won't be able to be used in the exterior position due to the ugliness.
