Default American Racing Baja Wheels

Does anyone have these wheels? I am thinking of putting some of these on my 05 Edge. Just wondering how you like them.. Pictures would be great...Thanks...

check my avatar. just wish the backspacing was a little less, but that was not too big of a deal to me. I like the classic 8 hole wheel so i was fine with them. when i got them they were polished, however i could never get them back to that

I like the Pacer 164s as they have bigger holes and look just like the MT Classics.



see how much bigger the holes are compared to the Eagles:



I got mine new local for $520 installed (420 for wheels and all, and another 100 for mounting an balancing)

Well, I can't get these wheels. They are on back order until the end of January, from the factory. I guess I'll just go with some black Craiger Soft 8's. They will probably look better, and be less upkeep anyway. Thanks to all for the replies...........

These are what I have on my Expedition. They actually are like 75 a rim for a 17" as they are discontinued. But they are similar to the ones above
