    ridiculous question

    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.
