Who's Running 18x7.5 Rims?

Ok, anybody out there running 18x7.5 rims ? If so what offset, tire size and tire rub issues? I'm liking the MRR GT1's (Black) or the Tenzo Mach 10's. The MRR's have a 48mm offset, the Tenzo's have a 42mm offset. Tires size will probably be 225/45/18, car is a '98 Black / Silver Special Edition. Stock suspension and no fender roll yet.
Suggestions, comments welcome.

I recommend 225/40/18 as appose to 225/45/18 esp if you plan on lowering but 45 may rub. If you need tires let me know, im in the process of starting an online tire business so you can be one of my first customers

SAP, thanks for the "pics link", certainly a lot more Legends than RL's.
Here's a pic of my '98, taken last year. Tires are 225/55/16.

If I go with a 18x7.5 rim my bigest concern is getting the right offset

Was going to do rims and tires back then but when the new Buell 1125R came out and well... I got side tracked. The 1125R is fricken awesome!



Hey Boondock... Richmond as in Virginia?

*facepalm*

I thought this was the G2 section (seems to happen to me a lot), despite your very obvious user name.

Hopefully there were at least a couple of RL's in there to help you out. Your car and bike both look great .
