Default What offset?

On a TB03 what offset wheels and tires (front and back) do I need to use both a 190mm and a 200mm body? I am new to onroad and need some new wheels and tires. The stock ones just don't cut it. Thanks in advance.

"0" front and "3" rear with 190mm (with 26mm wide wheels)

"3" Front and up to "6" rear with 200mm (with 26mm wide wheels)

is rule of thumb on most all bodies.

Thank you so much. I plan to run this body, the new IS F. Do the wide fender lips make a difference? http://www.hpiracing.com/products/en/17542/

Yes. It's pretty wide! You MIGHT be able to run 6mm front and 9mm rear!!

I have one in the shop I haven't mounted up yet so i'm not sure.

BUUUUUTTT....... You don't want to go too wide as this will decrease handling and performance.
