Why do People Run Staggered Setups?

Staggered Wheel Performance

Having a wider setup in the rear allows for more tire contact with the road, increasing grip and acceleration. This is why you tend to see the high-power street cars running a thick rear wheel and tire setup. They need the extra width to be able to put all of that power to the ground.

The Look

There are a few reasons people run a staggered setup. First, it looks killer! Having a staggered setup creates a far more aggressive stance on a lot of vehicles. It's not uncommon to see this style run on cars like the Mustang, E55 AMG, and Supra. A lot of these cars have wide rear hips that require a wider wheel to get proper fitment.

Running a different sized setup on the front and rear of a vehicle, particularly rear wheel drive cars, not only improves the performance of your car but looks awesome. Staggered fitment adds the much needed meat to the back of a lot of builds.
