    Staggered setup and AWD

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I am currently running a staggered setup on my 350z (265/285), but that car is RWD. I am planning on getting a Stinger GT AWD, and I find myself wondering if there is any benefit, or detriment of running a staggered setup. I am not planning on tracking or lowering my car, but I would like an aggressive look. I will be running 18" All-Seasons Continental DSW06

    tl dr: Should AWD be square, staggered, or doesn't matter?

    thanks all

    You can run both ways as the Stinger comes standard with squared 18" or staggered 19".

    What about staggered 18? What's the widest tires I could fit without rubbing?

    You can do that as well. Widest tires https://www.kiastinger.org/threads/2...-30-s-Possible

    Or you can go by wheel size, 18x9 fronts and 18x10.5 rear

    Usually with awd, you need to run them square. If you go wider in the back, more than likely you won't match the outer diameter of the rear and front tires. Even if you do, you can't rotate the tires. Rotations are necessary as front and rear don't wear equally, and awd transfer cases like to burn out if there is too much of a rpm differential between front and rear.
    If the awd is anything like the sti/evo, you may find yourself purchasing a complete set of 4 tires if your tires are 60% tread, and one gets damaged. (The hidden ugly of awd).

    I see. So not much performance difference, but huge in long term cost effectiveness. That's all I needed to hear!
