Default Losi 8ight-t 2.0 wheel on 8ight-t 1.0?

I raced my 8ight-t and wanting to mount 2.0 wheel on my 1.0. 8ight-t 2.0 have wider width and 1.0 has less width, does anyone races 1.0 with 2.0 wheel? 1.0 wheel is not very balanced because plastic part of wheel is making truck wider.
Thanks.

I ran zero offset on my 1.0 a few times. It works, but the wheels will rub on the a-arm at full lock. It's also not as stable in high speed sweepers; has a tendency to do bicycle turns which could be remedied with some suspension tweaking.

ive tryed it also and with the 2.0 wheels it turns sharper, if you measure the 2.0 and the 1.0 with 1/2 adaptors with the 0 offset wheels, measurement on both are the same 415.9mm, there is no advantage in running 0 offset wheels with 1/2 adaptors on a 1.0, also heard the 0 offset wheels are rough on bearings, i stuck with the 1/2 offset wheels.

the stock wheel is 0 off set i beleave. you want to run 1/2 off on the 1.0 truggy. the 2.0 uses the 0 off set wheel because the arms are longer alowing you to run 0 offset wheels

the wheels are the same size only different being the offset
