If no one is able to answer your question (I sure as hell can't), I would suggest checking out tirerack.com They have alot of info on stock or custom wheel and tire combinations.

More than one person here has fitted 17" wheels with 45 mm offset. I have some 17x7 42mm on order and will report fit in a week or so. Stock is suppose to 45 mm.

Discount Tire actually has more variety of wheels for the G1 Legend but TireRack has that nice Java thing to look at selected wheels on your car...too bad they don't have a G1 Legend. I used a G2 with appropriate color to get a pretty good idea.

Also look at Motegi, Tenzo, DAZZ, Sparco, ad infinitum.

Additional information to better manage your decision making:

Front wheel drive cars such as the Legend employ a more positive offset. This just means that the lug holes are located more to the outside of the wheel to provide better vehicle balance, so to speak.

Rear wheel drive use a more neutral or negative offset. Envision that BMW rim and you'll see why they look so elegantly angular as opposed to the flat rims that we have.

+40 ~ 47 are the reasonable ranges. Too much makes them look too 'in', risking fender rubbing, and not enough makes the car look like a lifted-up truck.
