I'm no expert on this one, but I do have a Losi 8T 1.0 that uses 1/2 offset wheels. This is to bring the Truggy up to current max width. However, if you have a newer Truggy like the Losi 8T 2.0 that has much wider arms than the 1.0 you should run the 0 offset wheels. So, if you Truggy is designed for offsets then run them.

With that being said I sometimes run 0 offsets on my 8T 1.0 to make it fit tigher tracks better. In that case I have to run the 2mm offset hubs so the inside of the wheels don't drag on the hubs or knuckles.
