Default widest positive offset wheel?

What is the widest positive offset wheel? If I am thinking backwards w/ wheel offset, I am looking for wheels to give the maximum track width. Thanks, already did a search and nothing came up.

The TLT offset was the best way to get maximum wheel offset. Basically, the hex was flush with the back of the wheel. Mayhem Engineering, MSD, Eritex and RC4WD all made wheels with that off set. You don't see it to much any more in 2.2 wheels because the axles have gotten wider and you need the wheels to come in to make the track width narrower.

The TLT offset looks like the ticket for what I need. The axles I am putting them on are Poulsons. I may end up making some slightly wider wheel hexes for them but would like to just be able to slap on wider wheels as I need to get a set anyways. Thanks for the answers guys, I appreciate it.

Stock Berg wheels are another good and cheap option. Also a super stout wheel. I drill them out for 3m hardware tho instead of the 2mm.
