If you have a right side mounted car, having the wheel rim and tire set more to the left would cause less strain on the axle. Since you have a cantilevered axle (unless it has been modified), having the weight and load concentrated closer to the swing-arm will reduce the shear forces and torsional forces on the axle and swing-arm. This will reduce the tendency to bend the axle or twist the swing-arm even though the wheel/tire assembly may be heavier than the original one.

So if i understand it good it's better out off center when the sidecar is on the right the wheel mounted to the left.
