One thing that i learned being a newbie to on-road also, is that my Tamiya wheels are narrower than the HPI Work XSA 3 offset. I had to change them because of my 200mm body looks dopey and a cracked wheel. When I mounted a tire that i cut off, just for mockup, I realized that the tire has a lower profile sidewall on the offset wheel. Less sidewall, less tire flex.

It all depends on the body you buy. Most 190mm bodies use a 0-3mm offset. Most 200mm bodies require a 3-9mm offset. It is all your preference.
