Yes you are right. It looks better than those awful truck wheels on the small Legend in the first pic.

Wow I'm gone a few days and I come back and see this. Our Legends are not meant for a lift period. The problem is that the bigger the wheel the lower the tire profile should be to fit properly. Think of it this way a GS comes with 16" wheels and a approximately 4.8" worth of tire sidewall all the way around. A 22" wheel means you could only fit approximately 1.8" worth of tire sidewall all the way around. Throw 4500 pounds worth of moving car on a tire that small and tell me what happens. Rims need to fit in the fenders PERIOD unless you have a truck and use it for any off roading use. Is it possible to have a large wheel that looks good on a Legend... yes however that's not a cheap proposition and most people aren't going to spend the right amount of $$ to make it work. I personally agree a 19 or possibly 20 inch tire with a TINY tire is likely as big as a Legend should be paired. Otherwise IMO that "Ronnie McDonald" clown comment really does apply!

i agree, and i'd never do something like this to one of my cars, but i also think it's awesome to see the crazy things people do to customize. the giant wheels thing has been cracking me up lately. there's also one guy here who has his mid-90s Prelude painted with a giraffe pattern! it's so much more interesting to see those kinds of things than all the freaking boring look-alike cars running around.

that is a nice looking legend too...it's sure got mine beat hgeez:
