What is the point of staggered set up FWD?
Having staggered wheels or running wider wheels on the drive wheels means more grip on acceleration and from an aesthetic perspective, larger lips. A staggered fitment can also mean larger diameter wheels on rear, for example a 17″ diameter on the front and 18″ diameter on rear.
Do staggered wheels affect handling?
As mentioned earlier, staggered tire setups on performance vehicles can help to achieve a desired handling balance, but that balance isn’t necessarily all about outright grip and performance. Staggered tire setups can also encourage a level of handling safety and security.
Can you run staggered wheels on RWD?
Some RWD cars run staggered setups, where the rear wheels and tires are wider than the front, providing extra grip to the drive wheels. But for an AWD or FWD car, a square setup is typically the most practical option for a variety of HPDE applications.
