staggered wheels differnce?

are staggered wheels jus for appearance or is there some kind of performance benefit from them. I'm ordering some wheels off AM soon and would like to know if they make a difference.

Looks and performance, if you have a 18/19-10 in the rear you can get a 285 size tire in the back which is much better for grip so u can launch harder and get better grip down the track. And it looks ****en badass hahahha

It helps over steer significantly.

only down side is you can't rotate the fronts and backs but who cares when they look that cool. i have 18 x 9 (245s) in the front and 18 x 10 (275s) on the back. very cool look. on my 12 vert.

i ordered mine from americanmuscle.com

they have the offset figures out so they look right. if you go to their web site you can see photos of mustangs that have the exact rims and tires you are interested in. mine do not stick out past the top of the fender. it looks like crap when they do. they do, of course, stick out as the body turns in but that's what looks so cool.

if you order the staggered rims and tires the back tires are a little lower profile than the fronts so the back end isn't too much higher than the front.

There won't be to much of a difference between the 275s and the 285s, right? Performance wise that is...

i went from stock 17s to 18 x 10 275s and i didn't notice any difference in the mileage. what i did notice is that the 275 40s have a little less circumference than the stock tires and throw the speedo off a little, registering maybe 2 miles an hour faster at 60 miles per hour. that would throw things off a little but also give you a little shorter gear ratio.

i have a 10 mustang and the 275 10s do not stick out beyond the top of the wheel well.

well I have 18s and I plan on sticking with 18 but I want to move to staggered and a different rim. I think ill go with staggered but what kind of tire should I get. I need one that would handle 140mph+

Any Z rated tire is rated for speeds in excess of 149
