Default Stance question

I probably won't get a chance to head out again until next season, but I have a stance question for you guys. Last time I went out, I switched my stance to 15/-15, which felt pretty good, but what I curious about is if there's a good rule of thumbe for stance distance. I ride a Rome 159. I'm about 5'10", 180 lbs, and my inseam is 30". I use the second to shortest mount holes on each end which looks like this"

----0-0-0-0-*-0-*-0-----------0-*-0-*-0-0-0-0----
----0-0-0-0-*-0-*-0-----------0-*-0-*-0-0-0-0----

I'm not sure what that length is off the top of my head since I don't have my board here, but I can check it. That distance felt pretty good, but I guess it can always be better. So, is there a good rule of thumbe for this?

just whatever feels most comfortable to you. i personally like a wide stance, i feel like i can bend my knees more and stay more balanced.

U just have to play around with it until u get a perfect stance. I like a wide stance because the way i see it, it's a lot easier to balance when your feet are spread apart rather than close together.

Red face Not Normal

I usually push my front binding all the way forward and then measure the center of the binding to the tip. I try to match that with the back foot so that I'm perfectly centered. (twin or directional) at 23 inches wide. I know that effect edge is not what I'm measuring but it doesn't seem to matter.
