OK now you guys got me thinking 20's now. I was going with 18's but was afraid that 20's would scrub the wheel well.

To the og poster. I don't think the wheels u want would fit the size style u are looking for.
The wheels in particular look to me like racing wheels, I would go with chromies if u wanna go 20's. Ur gonna look silly with 20" racing wheels on a sedan.

If I didn't know any better id'e think u were trynna go Big but save money by going race because 20" chromies = BIG $
I paid like 2300 for my 18's in 02 so....
N let me say this for the people that have 20" chromies, doesn't your car feel like a tank?
I mean it drives alot better because of the wider grip but damn did my coupe feel like it was obese.

How many 20" rim posts have been made.....seems like more lately now that a Legend is an inexpensive platform to start modifying. I just cringe when I hear about people who want to "DONK" or "DUB" them out......just downright sad....



....not like the good old days where we were trying to get BBK's made, looking for that perfect sized 19" wheel from SSR, getting CF hoods done, asking about Aero Magic lips, bringing in Magellan kits.....ahhh, the good old days...

get over it. things change and people will express themselves differently. Remember when 16s were all the rage and 17s were outrageous? what about when 18s were just right and 19s were too big...now 19s just right and 20s too big. IT's starting to make its way to 20s just right and 20+ too big...

Sh*t changes, evolves and tastes change...that's the way of the world.

BTW, I still think that "custom" body kit on your old Coupe was a hideous attempt at stylization. but that's just me. Don't bang on people's modes because yours aren't perfect. If you can't or refuse to offer help, can't and refuse to put forth useless posts on the subject.

As for the poster.


You're going to have to go for the 20x7.5" wheel. anything else other than that and you'd better be willing to pay 5k or better...It is going to be EXTREMELY hard to fit without crazy modifications to the wheels or the body, or BOTH! 20x8.5s are typical and if you want to drop you're going to have to find a high offset wheel and shave the fenders. Or modify the wheels (which most people wont do)

but 20s will fit if you get the right wheel/tire combo. Typically a 225/xx-20 tire is going to be the only tire that's not going to give you issues.


Also, Search up this topic. I'm almost certain a thread was made about 3 or 4 months ago with this EXACT same title.


EDIT:

BTW...

https://www.acura-legend.com/vbulleti...ight=20s+sedan

that's a sedan with wheels like you're looking for. It helps to search...that was on the first page of typing "20s Sedan"

You're right.......really don't like the way things are going with styling Legends these days, but that's just me.

IMO Legends look better dropped. Well, unless if you decide to give it a whole new body job.

Looks better dropped stock!..

You also have to consider that the stock brakes look ridiculous with the bigger wheels.

Very true.

But it doesn't matter if you get hideous wheels like this...
