Has anyone gone non-stagerred in their wheels & tires? I want to hear comments, experience, or even theories. Any disadvantage in doing so? I'm toying with the idea of putting 9.5 x 19s on all fours.

Appreciate your inputs. Thanks.

i'm going to be getting a non-staggered setup. probably 20".
i think you may have to replace a couple sensors to do it.
I tried to get lexus to give me 4 of the same and they balked at the idea and said "that's not how it was designed to be".

i'll let you know how it goes when I finally get the new rims and tires setup.
if i don't do it this fall i'll be doing it in the spring. I'm looking forward to seeing what rims are available @ SEMA in November.

Down side is increasing weight (both in wheel and tire). The front doesn't need as much width as the rear because it is not trying to get traction in a straight line. When you go to a bigger tire and wheel you are adding unsprung weight, the worst kind of weight when it comes to vehicle dynamics and handling. The goal is to have the least amount of wheel and tire to give you the desired results to keep weights under control. Increased unsprung weight will affect ride quality, turn in and ultimate grip.

Thanks Andy, that makes a lot of sense. Speaking of unsprung weight, I cahanged my wheels to my present WEDS which weigh less than 9kg per wheel, I really think that was one (if not THE) reason why my F beat the AMG C63 in the lap time comparo.
