I know that PN and Atomic don't sell 2.5mm fronts. However, I don't see why you couldn't put a 0.5mm shim on the knuckle to space the inner front bearing in a 2mm front wheel.

Only wheel I can find is the R246 RAYS CE28 wheel in 2.5mm narrow here at the shop.
The only other option is if you can find the complete kyosho wheel set for MR02.
It does front wheels in offsets of 0, 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5mm. Rear wheels in 0, 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0mm. That's all I can find. I thought that atomic made the S6 wheel in that offset but I guess they don't. Also if you can find the Ferrari 575GTC wheel set, the offset is 2.5mm front and 3mm rear. The wide McLaren F-1 uses the same wheels. The porsche 935 are of the same offset but the rear wheel diameter I think is 23mm. Not exactly sure but I know the rear wheel is bigger in diameter then the front. Or just get the 599 wheels which are +3 front and rear. Or any aftermarket wheel in +3 offset. Sorry that's all I can think of. Or just shim it like blt456 suggested.

+1 to shimming a +2 offset for giving you the biggest choice. You might want to investigate further but I THINK the fronts for the long nose McLaren are +2.5s though.

The old 575GTC Pasta Rocket used 2.5 fronts. That is the only listing on the old A/M compatibility chart that I could find.
