im lookin at getting some new wheels for my car, what is the advantage to staggering the wheels (8 wd in the front 9.5 wd in the back) as i've seen a lot of people do? better traction? i'm looking at going with 17 inch torque thrusts and mainly care about looks. what should i go with?

Its all about the looks, and your preference. Get what you like. I got 17x9.5 and 18x10.5. Only thing is the 18x10.5 is gonna cost me a little more when I buy new tires.

not traction, and not cornering for sure... i guess it's looks, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder... i prefer wide front tires, allow rotation, better cornering and handling characteristics. our cars love wide fronts, same size as rears.
