Is a staggered wheel setup better?
But even if you aren’t looking for maximum drag strip performance, staggered wheels and tires will likely be better for a daily driver. That’s because cars with wider front tires will likely be more “twitchy” on the road and more prone to tramlining on imperfect surfaces.
What’s the difference between square and staggered?
What you’re referring to is called a “staggered set-up,” and that means exactly what you said–the tires (and wheels) on the rear of the vehicle are wider (bigger) than the ones on the front. In contrast, a “square set-up” is what you’re used to seeing–identical wheels and tires all the way around.
Can you run square setup on staggered wheels?
You can run square tires, the feel of the tires will be different from front/rear. For example, if you run 225 all around, the front tires will be squished on the wheel. You’ll lose overall feel and responsiveness on the front, and thus decrease the overall grip of the tire.
