All you have to do is find some truck wheels with a large off set. If you notice the buggy rims are mounted in a manner that moves the tread closer to the middle of the chasis so the car can have a longer arm and still fit inside the maximum width. You can find rims that will mount up so that the tire sits further out and this will turn it in to a true truggy look once you mount up a truck body. I'm sure this is exactly what you were looking for right here.

Here's mine from a Lazer zx5 with HPI offset rims, evader body and custom aluminum undertray. The wing and front bumper are from a hotbodies 10th scale buggy. Lots of fun to drive, however for true truggy performance it does need to have longer arms and a longer wheelbase (all buggy conversions would need this, ideally), having offsets is just not enough.
