Get some HPI X-Pattern tires. D-Compound or Pro Compound. Those will be good enough for your streets.

HPI makes a nice selection of rims. Assuming just playing and not racing the offset can be about anything and work. Electric touring car race bodies are set up at 190 mm and many of the more realistic bodies HPI sells are 200 mm which would require some offset in the wheels to fill out the fenders. Making things even more complicated is some bodies are wider in the rear than in the front so the offset front to rear might be slightly different. Solaris tires might work good for you because they are pre-mounts and can be bought with a spoked rim which looks a little nicer than the dish wheels. They are designed as a race wheel and don't have much offset but if you are running a 190 mm body on your TC6.1 it should look good. For running outside one of the harder compounds should give you decent grip and durability. Sweep makes a good premount as well but to my knowledge only offers a dish wheel.

Good luck.

36r premounts actually work quite well on the streets without prep.

Check these out: http://www.speedpassion.net/shop/det...01&c=BODYSHELL


I bought them to just use as a shelf set - for the price they work really well. I even mounted them on my F103GT and the traction was surprisingly good. Best $6 set of pre-mounts I have ever purchased. Bought 2 sets - $18.58 shipped to my door. That's cheaper than a set of HPI rims alone.
