Thanks Johnny....get real basic with me here though.....

how do i pick wheels and then match tire sizes to it.

for example, the wheels I have are sized:
Total Diameterincluding lip) 2.07" or 52.5mm
Diameter: 1.92" or 48.6mm
Width: 1.03" or 26mm

First, will this size work on the TC3 190mm and 200mm

And what tires will fit?

Thanks!!!

Oops, also how do I know the wheels will actually mount on the tc3? What kind of mounting pattern does the tc3 have?

basically most wheels and tires for the touring car are 24mm and the tc3 uses a standard hex, so by defualt it should fit the tc3. dont buy wheels with an off set. Dont worry about the diameter and such, just know that 24mm tires will work on all 24 mm wheels. and yes it will work with 190mm bodies but on 200 there might be a lil body gap between the wheels.

most touring car tires/wheels are 24 and 26mm width and have a standard hex adapter that will fit the TC3. Some have different offsets, I am not sure what offset the TC3 uses, if any.

some 26mm might rub on the ballcups so you might have to get a offset wheel
