TIRE STAGGER IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HEIGHT OF THE LEFT TIRE COMPARED TO THE HEIGHT OF RIGHT TIRE. IT CAN HELP YOU STEER IN THE CORNER IF YOUR RIGHT FRONT IS BIGGER THAN YOUR LEFT FRONT. IT WILL ALSO HELP ON THE REAREND SET UP TO.

Stagger is the difference in circumference of the right and left side tires. It is preferable, on dirt, to run a "locked" rear end. A larger tire on the right rear helps the car turn. You can roll a baseball bat on a level surface and see the effect. However too much stagger can hurt you down the straights.

Stagger, very helpful when getting the car to turn in the corners. Street stock technology: also very helpful.
Stagger: what you do after you leave the bar that all the racers stopped at after the races.
