Dawes Horizon frame - steel or aluminium

Dear All,
I've been offered a Dawes Horizon and wanted to know if the frame is the 520 steel one that I want, rather than the aluminium one they produced for a few years - is there a quick test I can do, ie is steel magnetic and the aluminium one not, or any simple test like that?
Thanks,
Steve

Tyre size and rims

Dear All,
I was very recently given a couple of wheels but I now need to buy tyres and tubes for them. I favour a reasonably wide tyre, 37 or even 42 (Continentals), but wondered if the rims are suitable/wide enough. Does anyone have any advice?
Best wishes,
Steve
