    That's going to be great!!!! But I would like to see a more traditional 5 spoke wheel for the Baja. That wheel has tooooooooo many spokes.... and might look out of place on the Baja 5B...
    To be able to use all the tire options is fantastic.
    Just my opinion for an American USA looking wheel.
    Call me old fashion, but the look of the old school 5 spokes can't be beat.
    JMHO.......

    Does anyone know if these rims can be fitted with extension rings?

    Elcon rims look the same so I hope these will fit. That would allow to use stadium truck tires and ie. Hörmann Jumbos.

    IMO baja needs something wider for rear than these are. To front these will be awesome. Gives many tire options.
