Default Staggered... or not to stagger... that is the question.

So in a nut shell, I super interested in the Vossen CV5. I see all the recent posts and questions about a staggared set up, I just cant make up my mind. Options are 20x9 all the way around... or 20x9 & 20x10.5. I know what the staggared look looks like, just havent seen many non staggared srt up pics. Help.

All around = you can rotate your tires, save money. Staggered = you can't.

Bottom line, it's your money.

Does it really save money? I've never understood that. Your tires are still going to wear out one way or another. If my rear tires wear out first because I can't rotate then I'll buy 2 new rear tires and replace the 2 fronts when they wear out. If you rotate every 5k and your tires wear down perfectly even at the same time you will have to buy 4 new tires.

I just don't see the money savings. Especially if you take into consideration the cost of rotating tires at a shop every 5k miles.

Go staggered. You will love the look and the car handles much better.

Vossens are a good choice being a premier original authorized dealer for them I would recommend the following

For the GS I would do a staggered setup for the car.

20x9 + 38
20x10.5 + 45

245/30/20
275/30/20

Keep in mind with a square fitments 20x9 will not a give deep concave

it really comes down to what you desire

That's going to require quite a bit of fender work if you're going with 20x9 20x10.5

that was the thought. I was thinking if just rolling the fenders will be enough.

a 20 and 25 offset is aggressive to the point you need tire stretch and fender work

a straight forward application is the

20x9 + 38
20x10.5 + 45

this is a setup I have done a number of times and it works great every time !
