Default Offset sedan foams

Does anyone make sedan foams (assuming standard 12mm Hex) that are offset?

Twister sells 2mm offset rears
Kyosho sells 2mm offset rears
I think you can find older Jaco 1mm offset front and rears
I also believe I've heard of GRP maybe GQ selling 1-2mm offset rears as well

Thanks for the info.

Also, what is the narrowest foam sedan mounted tire available right now? as an FYI, not using this for a sedan, so not worried about being legal, etc.

Try using a Xacto knife blade to cut the wheel to the desired width. You do the cut while rotating the wheel on a tire truer. This method works well. I used to cut front tires to a narrow width to avoid traction rolling.
