Does anyone know how much these wheels cost I want them for the Baja I think it will make it look more like a truck with the steel wheels.

Those are basic steel Forester rims. Very common.

I *think* "subarurabbit" (Roger) has a set that he is attempting to get rid of. My impression is that these things are rather heavy, but extreamly durable.

yeah, don't pay more than $150 for a set. The dealership will charge you that much for ONE wheel!

For offroading, they'd be good wheels.

Ugly? yes.

I could see them looking good on a lifted, off-road baja. And yes, they should be EASY to find. Those forester wheels are a dime a dozen. Check some of the popular subie-friendly junkyards...

I got some nice tires already and 05 springs on my 03 Baja but no body lift yet but I think with those rims it would look better. These are the tires i have right now:

Bleh. I wouldn't pay more than $20 each or so.

What do you mean by 05 springs? Off an Outback or Legacy?
