Default Trying to replicate a real race car - Wheels/Tires ETC

Ok so I was looking at making a Honda NSX GT body and saw one setup that had green tires.

My main question is this:

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...n-2-6mm-Offset

Will these tires fit on any TC?

Also where do I get colored wheels? Specifically orange.

With 6mm offset wheels, you'll have a flush look with a 200mm body. If you are running 190mm body, you'll just have mad camber.

If you cannot find orange wheels, you can aways buy the wheels in white and paint them with a TAMIYA TS(orange color).

Or a 190mm body and 0mm or 3mm offset wheels depending on how flush you want it.

Also, instead of painting wheels you can dye them with RIT dye. It's more permanent than paint as it "soaks in" and you can't scrape it off. Paint will chip and scrape on wheels, so if you run it, be prepared. Dye becomes part of the plastic -- if you cut deep enough you'll see white, but a scuff will show the dyed color and not white like paint.

If the car is just for standing on the shelf you can run M03 arms and shafts on a TL-01 and you can run crazy wide tires or just mad offsets.

That what your talking about? Just put the dye in a bucket and place the wheels in there? Seems easy enough.

That's it. You have to heat up the water. How long you put the wheels in there does affect the color. You probably won't want to use the pot for food afterwards.
