sometimes it depends on what you got for hubs. those lame plastic disc brake hubs for example will make your wheels stick out more cause theyre wider (thicker mm) .

it varies from each body to be honest. Some 200mm you can fit a +10 offset easily, others +6.

Same goes for 190mm.

I have old rims at different offsets I hold onto just to matchup to the bodies when I get them to see what offset works best and then I get the rims I want. Saves me money in the long run.

i pretty much run 9's or 12's now a days cause of my camber. so now all my 6's and 3's are useless.

but theres another thing to consider, the difference offsets from different manufacturers are different. why? i have no idea why they did this. my 9's 10's and 12's are fit the same. theyre all from different manufacturers.

but its not a bad thing to have several sets of rims.

welcome to the hobby. lol
