I will buy from rockymountain, so i want to know if it's a good thing to pay more for itp baja?

combo kit + shipping to canada

with ITP baja, in black, 478$

and my other choice is the G-FORCE cx rim

With G-force, in black, 347$

Did I really need to pay 130$ more for baja wheel in front????

well it depends you get what you pay for

but i think douglas red lable would be a better in between little stronger material than the g-force
im running douglas rokout rims ive beet them on rocks and havent bent one Hell I barely scratched the finish

you might call them they might be able to get rokout wheels since you are looking at black

Wheels

Mate, have a look at the reinforced OMFs they use the Douglas Red Label with there own reinforced rings, I use them front and rear and there a good ballance between price and performance. I have used the ITP Baga in the past and there good also, but the OMFs are a bit stronger and better looking for around the same amount of cash.

Only you can answer this. The G-Force is pretty much a stock style wheel. Did you ever have a problem with the stock wheels? If the stock wheels held up fine, then you should be fine with the G-Force wheels. If on the other hand, you bent the stockers, you should probably look at the Baja's or a similar reinforced wheel.

When you say reinforced wheel, this is juste with rolled rim on the edge, or like baja wheel with an outside ring?

I scrap a stock wheel, so not on the edge of the wheel, the wheel is now false (dont know if i can write it) . i smash it on a rock' and all ring on each wheel cannot help on this!!!!

Reinforced like the itp baja. The rolled lip style like the stockers will bend easier. Go with the itp baja or the omf/douglas wheels with reinforcing rings.

I have the baja rims. they are pretty sturdy and stuff, another member on here used them once and jumped off a 200 foot cliff and it bent one of them, other than that they are pretty decent for the price. The only complaint I had with them is that it is hard to get air in them and stuff due to the valve being right where the damn ring is, so you have to be careful when you fill it as you have to bend it.

A "good" rolled lip wheel can be just as strong as a wheel with a reinforcing ring. I used to race with Baja's years ago, I could go out and ride all the time and never have a problem. As soon as we raced on them, they would bend like butter. We would bend at least one a race, one race we bent all four! The rears were the worst, but we also bent a few fronts. I then switched to DWT ultimate's. Below is the link to the new front versions:

In the three years I have ran those, I have bent three, two of them bent during me cart wheeling the quad in 5th gear pinned, the other after hitting a big rock at speed with a flat tire. Two of those three I stiil use to this day, they did bend, but not to bad. I have been amazed at how well they hold up for just having a rolled lip.

The difference between the X-Rex and Razr2 is just who sells them, tread patterns are exactly the same. Maybe the compounds are different? Not sure. I know I will be trying a set when I need some new tires, Maxxis just keeps getting more and more expensive.

crwh45, the Baja fronts are a pain to air up. I only ran the 4:1 offset fronts and they were impossible to air up. I actually had to notch the reinforcing ring on them to get to the valve, pain in the butt.

I just purchased the exact Rim/Tires from Rocky Mountain that you are talking about.

ITP Baja 4/144 3+2 offset
Maxxis Razr 2's

They fit the bike really nice. The only thing I noticed is that with that offset the brake caliper is slightly exposed as compared to the stock rim where the brake caliper is completly covered. Let me know if you want some pics. I should be able to post or send you some this weekend.

for baja wheel, i need 4/144 with 3+2 off set, for wider than stock? right?

it's for front!!!!
Correct, with a 3:2 offset wheel the front of your 700XX will be about 1" wider then it was with the stock wheels.

Here are the 2 pics. The first is the stock tire. The second is the Razr2. You can see the coverage difference of the brake caliper. Let me know if you need anymore.

I have them in my public album. When I bring them up there is a message on the bottom of each.

"Picture Waiting Moderator Approval"

Do they have to be approved before they will post? When I look at the thread they pictures are in there. I am not sure. Will have to wait and see. If you guys pm me with your e-mail I can send direct if needed.
