I just tried to fit 19x7.5 with +44 offset and a 225/35/19 on the front of my Legend and it stuck out well past what I'd consider to be acceptable. Sure I could put 2+ degrees negative camber in it but that doesn't make much sense on a daily driver. I'm not sure how any of you are fitting anything less than a +50 offset in a 7.5" wheel flush inside the fender. I was pretty disappointed after what I'd read here encouraging me that that fitment would work Gotta get rid of these in favor of something else.

I would double check the wheel size, as it sounds like you have an 8 inch wide wheel, or a +38 offset.

a 7.5" wheel with a +44 offset will not stick out. I'm running a 7.5" wide with a +42 offset and I'm flush.

Here are the shots I took of the 19x7.5" sizing and ET 44 on the back side of the wheel. That is definitely the size, and you can see the results. Tires are 225/35/19 and the sidewall is a bit stretched if anything; definitely not bulged. If that looks "flush" to you guys then I guess you have a higher tolerance for the lowrider look than I do, especially considering how low I plan to drop it. By the ruler it would take 4-6mm milled from the back side for the wheel/tire to sit flush with the fender. If the fender went straight down, it would rest firmly on the tire.

Sorry for the blurry pictures of the back of the wheels, hard in the low light with the glare created by the flash.

Looks like it is just physicaly too much tire and wheel. Mine sit about flush and they are a 48. But my tire kinda cups in a tad and clears the fenders. I am sure your overall diameter of your wheel and tire vs stock is huge.

I'm willing to bet that if you measure them, they are not +44.
