Are we talking production cars, road course cars, or drag cars? I'm not saying there's no performance advantage in staggered setups, but it depends on the application.

Unless you're making crazy power, have a rear mounted engine, never accelerate around a corner, or want to look sporty, then a non-staggered setup is best.

I run 235 all around right now, it's pretty neutral, for auto-x I want 255 all around, not staggered.

Basically what Mystical has said is right.

Mystikal, i dunno what tires you are running, but you are spinning in 3rd gear with just 170hp

of course m3 doesnt spin tires while rolling, thats why they come with 245s.
