I've gotten some "wholesale" price lists from a few online dealers and really the prices arn't that great. I bought my wheels through www.wheelmax.com and I was real happy with thier service and prices. As far as checking offset with your tires do a search of previous posts and you'll find the info you need. From what I can remember though, you'll need a pretty high offset if your going to go with a 225.

Sell them on ebay, or see if you can trade them in at discount tires

Leon,

What size tires do you have? I have 225/40 tires on 18x7.5 Racing Hart T-6 wheels with +43mm offset and they rub. My car is not even lowered. It rubs on any bump or corner when any one is in the back seat, and the front rubs when taking hard corners. It rubs on the inside of the fender.

I have actually taken these rims off and am looking for new 18's with a higher offset. Anyone know of brands that I can look for that tend to manufacture wheels with higher offsets? The highest offsets for Racing Hart rims that I can ever seem to find are +43mm.

It depends on the manufactures as well, some people can get away with lower offset with certain manufactures while some couldn't. So to be safe, always shoot for the as high as possible, since stock offset for the Legend is a whapping +65 with 6.5in rims. If you're gonna get 7inch or 7.5 or 8 inch aftermarket rims, wouldn't it make sense to get a higher offset than +42.

I as well as many other on this forums would suggest getting rims with no less than +46 offset. Cuz would you rather get the rims on the car and find out it rubs?

Also, Leon, your car is lowered. Did you put in a camber kit? W/o a camber kit, a lowered car would pull the top of the rims and tires inward / -- \ like this, making it tuck under the fender.

Be careful looking for wholesale rims. Take a look at a previous post of mine.
