So you think staggered tires/wheels are a great idea?

For me, staggered wheels and tires is for racing purposes.

I am riding on 18x10 with 275's all around.

I had 265's before, but i seem to enjoy these a bit more.

If car is lowered, expect to roll fenders (front and rear) and also chop or mold the wheel housing in the fenders.

Here is how the car currently sits, on Stance suspension with the fitment details mentioned above:

Yes, the taller the tire the more issues it will have. 10" and 285/30 is a good match, but you can also use up to +52mm offset @ 10" wide to get it stuffed in there well. Same issue with 19", more cost and less tire size options.

Offset: +45mm
Backspacing: 6.81"
Bolt Pattern: 5-114

Those are the specs on the wheels i want. would i be able to fit these with the right tires without modding the fenders. also what tire size should i get. I dont want to lose performance

it will fit,

I had previous a complete set of 19x9 +38 offset rims, had them wrapped in 245/35/R19 and lowered, did not encounter any issues.

If you dont want to lose performance, just make sure the rims weigh less then your original to compensate for the weight of the larger tires.

Whats is the largest diameter rears we can go with staggered on the rear?

4000 RPM at 80 Mph does not economize gas, and I can take off in 2nd gear as good or better than 1st gear....

Doesn't the RX8 pull speed from the front passenger wheel; so the rear diameter change would not affect my speedometer calibration?

Pretty sure it pulls speed from the transmission.

I have had several sets of wheel and tire combos and my speedo is always with 1-2MPH of my GPS. I am staggered now, my rears are 19 x 9.5 +27 rear with a 255/35-19 tire and 19 x 8.5 +24 front with a 245/35-19 tire.

After reading several posts let me say that claiming the RX8 as balanced the way it is and advising against stagering would imply the car is perfect the way it is factory and stock wheels and tires are the only way to top performance

We know that is not true Different demands for different rides (autocross, city /street performance, circle track, etc) and diferent combinations of tires and wheel widths render absolute terms like "stagered works not" fallacious

Sway bars can tune over any understeer so that wider wheels and tires on back can offer better cornering without understeering's detrimental effects

You might think bigger rear wheels-tires are giving you understeer ? Get a larger rear sway bar or decrease the size of the front one Plenty of room to work with

It can have detrimental effects if poorly implemented or perfect results if calibrated and tuned up properly
