everyone i saw running a MBX5T ran offset... but maybe im missing something or they were just running the wrong wheels.... i just remember alot of people being glade the MBX6T used the wheel extension to use 0 offset and then others not liking it because they had so many offset wheels...

but maybe im completely wrong

Yeah im not really sure now, but would like more info. I looked up as much as i could and seems like alot of ppl using a zero offset on the mbx5t. I measured the old set i had on, and from outside wheel to outside wheel, it was 16 3/4 inches wide, with these ones, i lose 3/4 of an inch.

These are the stock wheelhexes for the MBX5T as you can see they are allready extended, if you use these with 1/2 offset rims your truck is to width and you will loose alot off steering :

What some people do on the MBX5T and MBX6T is use 2mm buggy hexes and then use 1/2 off set rims, that will make the truggy narrower and you will gain some more offpower steering but, the truggy will be less stable.
