Seriously I never knew that you could get steel wheels and hub caps on our cars for the longest time until I FINALLY saw one with steelies and no hub caps. I just rarely ever see an mn12 with steel wheels

I did find a couple of them at a junk yard, I was going to do something with a set of them but never did. I was also going to try the 16 inchers from a Taurus but in the end I stuck with aluminum wheels.

Does your car have power locks, rear defrost, power seats or cruise?

9 out of 10 times these cars won't have any of that with the base wheels. All of that is very rare.
