Default Staggered setup on AWD !

Anyone running staggered setup on their AWD?

- What is your wheel/tire setup ?
- How many miles you've been running this for ?
- Are you noticing any issues (gas millage ect...)
- Also post your general thoughts/comments

I'm waiting for my RSR lowerign springs to arrive and then I'll be looking at wheels/tires so any information would help.

I have an AWD, had the option of going staggered but decided against it. Currently running stock suspension, square set up on forged Rays Eng 19x9, 255/40/19 Michelin PSS. I use my car in the winter so I didn't feel the need to go staggered and mess up my speedo.
My winter setup is 18x8, 225/50/18 Michelin X-Ice/3.

Speedometers are not effected if you get wheels with equal circumference, even if staggered. There are many owners who do have a staggered setup with AWD. On RWD you dont neccessarily need the wheel diameters to match BUT with AWD it would cause the comp to think there is slippage. Find a wheel + tire calculator through google and match it up. I have 245/40 in front and 285/35 in rear. Both equal and speedometer remains consistent to factory settings.

Or if getting lazy to google and manually enter the numbers, automobile catalog already did the calculation with +3% / -2% relative to stock measurement:

I reached out to my fellow G37 folks for input on this matter, see below. Biggest factor in going square was the ability to properly rotate my tires and increase the life of my PSS.

Lowered with the right 19's will look legit.

All my previous cars were stock so I hope so haha. bought regular rsr downs not the super ones and will probably get 19x8.5 Stance SC-1 wheels and call it a day. I don't know much about offsets/sizes/widths etcs.

-20x9.5 ET25, 245/35 front & 20x10.5 ET45, 275/30 rear
-Running staggered on my AWD, have only been running them for about 200km/125miles only but so far so good.
-Gas mileage has improved slightly so far, but I think that's cause I just got a realignment.
-Love how the set up looks, and I "feel" it handles better vs. my previous 20x9 square set up but this could be a number of things (alignment, new tires, etc)
