It's a personal preference. If you do some research (size, width and offset) before purchasing a set of "quality"
aftermarket wheels, they actually ride just as nice and perform much better than OEM wheels. Making the proper tire purchase also is a factor in this equation. I do agree with you that the Legend is not the best platform for purchasing after market wheels that fit properly.

I had a set of real BBS that I paid quite a bit for way back when....they didn't roll right (car constantly shook)....I used BBS' hubcentric system that centered the wheel perfectly, I used acura lugs, I used BBS lugs, I tried McGard lugs, think I even tried Gorilla lugs...no dice...had them rebalanced 3 times....I got frustrated and sold them to a friend with a TL at the time...he had no issues.

Because that's the way acura intended it to be in the first place.
