Been looking at getting some new kicks for the car. But what is the best offset for a nice flush look...Going 17's for my Legend. Dropped on stock struts and Eibachs. Will be getting some Koni's this spring when I pick up rims.
looking at no wider than 8 inches wide. I'm at 7.5 right now want a bit wider. They are flush right now but i have no clue on the specs of my current rims. I'm going either 17 or 18 in size. 8 inch wide is my goal.
edit:it's just the offset im unsure of on my current setup.
I'm running 17x8 with a 45 offset.. It's not 100% flush but it's fits well lining up with the fenders.. Maybe run a 43..
If that's your car in your sig with the current offset your running then I may be doing the same offset. I will be looking at some rims soon so if I can find something in that offset I will probably do that. Thanks.
I am running 8-inch wide wheels with a +60 offset and the wheel is perfectly aligned with the outer edge of the wheel well. I feel anything wider or with a lower offset will jut out or even worse: will strike the suspension arms. You may be able to fudge things with a drop and/or camber modification.

Glad you guys made it out, and nice meeting all of you.
Willie I still dont know how u do it. With such wide wheels and low offset, I would think those would SCRUB something awful. Hell my 19 x 8 40mm rub from time to time. Might just be my struts.
I also wish I had caught a knee cap with him facing me, just to send a message to faggot ass theives that like 2 steal. "NO EASY TARGET HERE. ATTEMPT THEFT AT UR OWN WAGER, BUT WHEN THE HOUSE WINS U MAY LOSE MORE THAN UR CHIPS. i.e. UR LIFE."
