Default Offset question

I know this might be a stupid question but what is the difference between zero and half offset wheels?

0 offset wheels have the hex on the outside face of the wheel like buggy wheels and 1/2 offset the hex is recessed back into the center of the width of the wheel. 1/2 offset wheels make your truggy much wider. The Jammin and Losi truggies used to use them but most all newer truggies use 0 offset wheels now including the new Losi truggy

It puts the axis the wheel steers left and right on in the center of the wheel. (kingpin)
