What are staggered wheels?
When you see staggered wheels, that means the wheels on the back of the vehicle are a different size than the front. Most common staggered rim fitments will be wider wheels in the rear of the vehicle such as 19x8.5 front wheels and 19x10 rear wheels. On some vehicles such as the Acura NSX, Chevrolet Corvette, and others you will find wheels in the rear that are both wider, and usually 1 inch larger in diameter. Typically staggered fitment wheels are found on rear wheel drive vehicles such as Infiniti G35, Nissan 350Z, many BMW applications, Mercedes Applications, Audi, VW, Ford, Porsche and many more.
Is a staggered application ok to use on AWD?
It depends on the manufacturer of the vehicle, but generally staggered wheels are not recommended for AWD (All Wheel Drive) vehicles. Most AWD vehicles have been engineered to perform their best with the same size wheel front and back, so you may suffer a decrease in performance and handling of the vehicle. However in recent years staggered wheels have become more and more available on many high performance sports cars such as the Nissan GTR, Audi R8, and many others. With that said, even if your car did not come with staggered wheels from the factory, most vehicle's computer systems can adjust for the small variance in rolling diameter between the front and wheel tires, and usually do not cause any harm to the vehicle. Some AWD vehicles such as the E Chassis BMW, Infiniti, and Tesla are particularly sensitive to putting different size tires on the front compared to the rear.
Can I put staggered wheels on a front wheel drive car?
In some cases FWD (Front Wheel Drive) cars have enough room in the rear to fit a wider wheel such as the Acura TL but generally speaking you will have to make fender modifications in the rear to fit a wider wheel and tire. If you want the staggered look with a larger lip in the rear, many wheel companies have introduced a simulated staggered application. What this means is the front and rear wheels are the same diameter and width, but the rear wheels have a bigger lip. They are able to accomplish this by setting the spokes on the rear wheels further in the wheel to give it a bigger lip. Sometimes you can get as much as a 4 inch lip in the rear.
