problem,

I don't know anything about OFF, it's irrevelant to OpenGL, but switching to wireframe
is very easy:

glPolygonMode( GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_LINE );
glDisable( GL_LIGHTING );
glColor3f( 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f ); // draw black lines

You don't have to change your core routines how the model is drawn, just
change the poly mode.
