Honda Accord: car used...it had after market alloy wheels

Resolved Question:

!993 Honda Accord Sta Wag...bought the car used...it had after market alloy wheels...one
wheel is bad has a twist or out of round problem and needs to be replaced. I can't find
anything like the current wheels nor can I afford new alloy wheels. Is there any problem if I use 2 of the alloys and buy 2 new steel wheels using 2 of each on the 2 sides of the car?
I would get wheel covers for the steel wheels. Thanks

You have to make sure the new tires will be the same size.

Be sure to have the wheels installed either in the front or rear.

Functionally the car will be safe to drive with 2 steels and 2 alloy wheels. As long as the tire SIZE are the same for all 4 tires.

The only problem is cosmetic.
