what are you running now ? tire sizes mean nothing to us i have 205/70/14 tires on 3 corners of my car and they range from 78-81 inches so we need to know the roll of the tire not the size.if you add more stagger it will add cross weight and help you turn the car, less will tighten the car up on the front rears adding stagger will loosen the rear end if you have to much rear it will make it way loose i found out a couple weeks ago went way to far and looped it in the first turn

Well your wondering about stagger and all that. Well I've come to find out that you dont always need stagger to run goo dor for the car to handle well. I run 255/70/15 all the way around my car but i do have some 235/75/15 mounted so if i ever feel the need for stagger. I only run an 2" offset wheel on my left rear. Besides that I dont run any stagger and never had my car scaled so just to let you know my car has never been tight or loose. It may sound weird but I dont have any stagger but if I was to need any stagger go about 2". 3" is too much especially my track it's a half mile banked.....
