9"s pretty wide for a Legend. It'd have to have a pretty high offset/ET to not stick out. If you post up the wheel you're talking about, I'm sure people can suggest similar designs that would fit correctly.

You'd need a +65mm offset on a 9" wide wheel to get the wheels inside the fenders and you'd have 32mm less clearance on the body side of the wheelwell that would most likely rub on everything. If you want really wide wheels, trade 'er in for a 350z, Supra or Viper

i've seen such setup on one legend for sale and i just loved how it looked. but the guy didn't know the et. i guess i'd like the wheels to stick out a bit to make the car look like a muscle car sort of thing...

it's a 1995 EDM honda legend coupe (no L's or GS's here, just one full option)

about choosing the right design for the rims... maybe you guys can help me out?? i want the car to have an aggresive, sort of 'muscle car' look to it. i'm not digging chromes and i love black rims. any suggestions are very much welcomed
