I don't think there is. There are offset hubs though...

For example:

I think the problem you will find is that most buggy kits are so close to the maximum legal width that you can only run 1-2mm of off-set before they become too wide... therefore, it is pointless for manufacturers to produce off-set wheels as they would be deemed illegal to race in most countries

there are some wheels and tires are now wide wide enough to be legal, Like the proline V3's wheels and tires which will make your car wider and easier to control. I haven't tried it yet but it will be good on DRIER track I guess, blue groove but if your track is moist or really muddy its not a good choice mud will be cakey , a little moist will be good too. the car will be a little taller and wider.. good enough ha..
