Default newbie ? what offset wheel for parma camaro

I'm new to the whole street/drift car world so sorry in advance but I just purchased a parma 69 camaro body for my hpi e10 drifter since my favorite street car in the world is the big red one camaro of legendary speed runs so I wanted a look alike car. I know the stock body is 190mm and the parma is 200mm so should I run a 4mm offset or a 6mm offset? The car has a low stance so the front fender should e over the hweel and tire some just in case that matters?(maybe a 4mm front and 6mm back I don't know just throwing that out there) It's just a fun drift car not anything serious. Thanks for the help god knows I need it.

Default Wheel offset....

I think you've pretty much hit the nail on the head

The only thing I'd pay note to is, most of the domestic style wheels (mainly from HPI) come in (odd) offsets of 3,6,7,9, and sometimes (10) so you will have make choice with those numbers. If youy want 4mm offset you'll have to go with a import looking style wheel Something from Yokomo or Speedway Pal. You should find somethign that will work for you here:

After seeing a picture of real car that you are talking about.

I figure these HPI wheels will give you that look that you're trying to achieve.
