I guess that this is what I better try to comply with, rather than risk 
wasting money on another set of rims and not be able to use them.  I would like 
thank everyone who responded to my question.

The front of a TR-3 may be able to accommodate zero offset rims, if the front 
suspension has not been widen or a TR-4 frame has not been installed.  I have 
been using one inch spacer plates on the front and am still under the 
allowable width.  If a TR-4 rear axle housing is installed, the rear track 
would be 
greater than the allowable width using zero offset rims.

If I remember correctly, Jack Wheeler was using Centerline Wheels with a 
three inch offset for his IRS TR-4.  He was using only 1/4 inch spacer plates 
reach the maximum allowable track.
