Default Binding Placement (Width Wise)

I'm wondering how I should place my bindings in terms of their placement on the width of the board. Should I just center the binding, should my toe be over the toe edge a little, should the heel, etc? Thanks in advance.

You should try to have the same amount of overhang on your toes and your heel.

With the disc horizontal, center your boots over the board.

The amount of overhang (measured in cm, inches, whatever) will determine the balance of the board.
The angle of over overhang will determine the toe/heel drag point.

Start by moving the heelcup back and forth. If you can't get it perfect enough, you can fine-tune the centering by moving the highback back and forth.

If you can't move the heelcup due to some dumb engineering involving a hex key (oh hi K2, we were just talking about you), then you will have to use the highback and/or rotate the discs.

Legally, using that method what is my ultimate goal? Same amount of toe/heel overhang?

Go for an equal angle, with a moderate level of consideration to the amount of overhang.
