What's the best offset for the Legend?

18x7.5J offset available: 30/43/55.
18x8.0J offset available: 24/37/49/62
18x8.5J offset available: 18/30/43/55/68
18x9.0J offset available: 11/24/37/49/62/75
18x9.5J offset available: 5/18/30/43/55/68
18x10J offset available: -1/11/24/37/49/62

Is it 18x7.5 43 offset?

GO FOR THE +55 ON 18x7.5.
Dave,

Just in case I ever wanted to sell these will +55 limit the amount of cars these will fit on?

Would +43 cause rubbing or fittment problems?

Thanks, again.

Nope, they can always add spacers to the +55 wheel.

+43 offset is not a problem as long as you run 225-40 tires.

How about 18X7.0 with a +40 offset? would it rub on a G2 Coupe?
I want 225/40/18 rubbers... I think with the 7.0 it would be tucked in the wheel well even with the +40 offset... Anyone think otherwise??

I think it should be fine, but I just not comfortable on putting 225/40R18 tires on 7" wide rims. But it should be OK, no safety concern here, just looks I guess.

I would go with the 225-40 tires. That way you would have extra rubbers to protect the rim lip.

When I had my SSR DeColte that's what I did - 18 x 7 with a +49 offset.

You can see picts of them on Darren's car (Acuralegend.com)

I just want to confirm that it is OK.
I think it will fit, if I can run 19 x 8 with a +51 offset and 235-tires than that setup should not be a problem.

My setup is bigger and I get no rubbing at all, plus I have Koni and Eibachs.

please help a g1 owner !!!!

Maybe some you g2 owner's who used to own a g1 can help me with my offset problem !!!! Please!!!!!!!!!!!
I currently have borbet type S rims which are 17 X 7.5- I Believe that the offset is 35. I'm sure of the offset b/c i saw the info on a site and it stated [ 17 X 7.5 ET 35].

So here are my questions is the ET the offset?
If not then where can I find out what is the offset for my rims?
I ordered them from Tire rack. Will they be able to give me the info?

The reason i want to know the offset is b/c I plan on lowering my g1 coupe (eibach/tokico) and want to know if i will have a rubbing problem.
If 35 is the offset will I have rubbing probelm after I lower the car.

Please help !!!!!!!!!!
Thanks
Esti

I'm with Dave. Get the 18X8 or 18X7.5 with the +55. While rubbing may not by an issue with the lower offsets, you will defiantely stick out in front if you have 0 degree camber with anything lower than a +48. I base this on my 17 X 7 with +46 rims, With 0 degree front camber, my front rims stick out about 2 mm or so. It is not much, and a very slight .5 degree negetive camber tucks it in nicely, but stil, it will stick out if the conditions are right. And I only have a 7" wide rim with a +46mm offset.

Now keep in mind, my firend actually has a 17 X 7 with a +38 offest. With 0 degree camberm, the front rims used to stick out about 4 mm or so. Also note, his 7" rim has a total width of 200mm, while my 7" rims has a total width of 202mm. With 215/45 ties on his car, lowered about 1.75" with Eibachs and konis on low, and corected camber to about .5-.7 negetive, his front tires are perfectly flush with the outer lip of the fender, and he does not rub at all. So, how you set up your front suspention like camber and ride hieght will determine how low an offset you can get away with. Also the total width of the rim will also play a factor. The 7" designation are all standard for the measurement of where the tire bed is, but the over all width depends on the rim design. Just as my friends 7" rim has a total of 200mm, and offset of +38, and mine has a 202 total and +46, the offsets are only reletive to our own rims. As If he had a 200mm rim with an offset of +46, he would essentially have a more positive offset than I do with my 202mm +46. For example, a +50 on a 200mm rim would have 100mm on each side. A +50 on a 202mm rim would have 101mm on each side. You have an extra 1mm sticking out on each side of the rim, and that 1mm could determine of you just clear, or barely rub.

So if I want to run 18X7.0 w/ a +40 offset can I go with a 225/40/18 or would I be better off with 215/40/18 because I want to lower the car on koni's and eibach's?

I would suggest the 215 vs the 225 on a +40mm offset.
Here is mine before, with 225/40/18 with 40mm offset, 18x7.0





In this setup, it didn't scrub, but the 225 tire would be flush with the fender, with more - camber. This is lowered 2" up front

Hey I like that setup... But why would you go w/ 215 instead of 225? Is it because of the camber issue? The above picture is exactly what I would want my coupe to look like lowered.. mabey 1.75 in the front though.. And your set up 18X7 w/ 40+ offset is what u were running and what I'll be getting. What would the the benifit of running 215/ w/ the 18X7 rims? Also what springs and shocks were using in the above pic? how low in the back was the drop? And if you were using koini's what perch were they on?
Thanks man..:D

Hey Leon,
You have GC-koni combo on the front and eibach-koni on the rear. Right? What level is the rear perch sitting on the konis? The top middle or bottom?
I have just bought eibachs and konis and don't know whether the bottom perch is too low for the rear. I plan on putting 18x7.5 rims with +45 offset (that is the highest I could get for the rims I am looking at) i don't want my tires(225/40-18) to rub and I don't want a fender gap over two fingers...
I wanted to know your settings so that I can have rough Idea of which perch level to set my konis...
