Default Those who have staggered wheels... Help!

Howdy guys. Im seriously considering staggered wheels but i have one big problem. I know you can rotate left and right but not front to back. For those who have it how have you noticed tire wear to be extreme?

Totally depends on the type of tires, etc. Sometimes you cant go even go left to right since some tires are directional and sided. They will wear more quickly depending how you drive and how soft the tires are, etc. I think the car looks alot better with a staggared fitment anyways.

Extreme tire wear is due to aggressive driving or poor alignment. You have control over both.

I totally agree with Roush. I have 18 X 9's on the front with 18 X 10's on the rear (see pic below). If you run too wide of a tire (on the rear) you may have to get your fenders rolled. I currently run a 285 tire with a 1 inch spacer but once I return from Korea I'll be running a 305 tire and ditching the spacers. Also is your car lowered? If so, you will need caster camber plates. Learned that one the hard way...
