Staggered Fitment: Why Does My Vehicle Have Different-sized Wheels for the Front and Back?

Vehicle manufacturers that offer high-performance packaged trim levels for their vehicles have introduced larger tire and wheel packages with unequal sizing for the front and rear. The term for using larger wheels and tires in the rear and smaller in the front is staggered setup. Although there are clear benefits for staggered wheel setups such as enhanced grip and appearance, there are also drawbacks in terms of tire rotation and replacement. Equal-sized enhanced wheel and tire set ups, if sized correctly, can offer similar performance without the drawbacks of a staggered setup, while still offering the possibility for tire rotation and enhanced longevity. Refer to our vehicle selection guide to see if your vehicle qualifies for equal-sized tire and wheel enhancement.
