You wont find the "exact same design" in an aluminum wheel because aluminum will almost always be thicker to give equal strength to steel. Even though it is a lighter material, the extra thickness adds back some weight, so not as big a difference as one might think if both are identical designed.
I've never seen an aluminum wheel that looks just like a steel. Most are a different design.
