    It depends. Do you mean straight line or cornering? Front's won't do anything for rear grip in straight line, but will keep the car balanced for cornering. You can stagger the sizes, but you need to compensate with the suspension if you want stay balanced in the corners.

    You have to run spacers for the 11" wide unless you can find something with a custom off set. I have no clue what that would be. It's more of personal preference I guess. Just don't go smaller than 9" wide.
