Default Why should one run a staggered setup?

I am just curious what the advantages are of running a staggered setup on a car? Is it better to do this with cars that have more HP and Torque? Are there any disadvantages?

Advantages:

- If you have a rear wheel drive car, more grip for acceleration.
- Looks MUCH better.. IMO (the bigger lip loook in the back looks good)


Disadvantage

- If you want to have a matching spare then you can only match the front and if your rear blows....
- A little more expensive


Im sure i missed some stuff some hope someone else can chime in. hope that helps a little

Default Staggered

Advantages:

Looks
Performance IF your car oversteers (back end fishtails in the corners).

Disadvantages:

Can't rotate the tires
Will cause the car to understeer, IF you already understeer this is not good.
