Looking for an upgrade to boring OEM wheels? 19” staggered wheels may be the answer you’re looking for. A staggered set of 19 inch rims is typically the go-to size for most enthusiasts, especially for small to midsize RWD sedans. Even if you’re not upgrading from an 18 to a 19, the change in width and offset makes a huge difference when it comes to overall aesthetic and performance. At Curva Concepts, we strive to provide our customers with expert advice and guidance when it comes to finding the right fitment for their vehicle.
Staggered wheel set ups have been part of the car and motorsport scene since the very beginning. Due to its performance benefits, specifically on RWD vehicles, manufacturers have been pushing out cars with staggered wheels from the factory. And in recent history, manufacturers have been running OEM staggered fitments on non-performance vehicles as well. With one major drawback…the non-performance models tend to roll out of the factory with a very conservative wheel width and offset. That’s where aftermarket wheels come into play. Custom staggered wheels offer unique wheel designs, concavity, aggressive offsets, and wide widths that give your car new life.
Let’s use the Mustang GT with the performance package as an example. Ford sells the GT with a staggered wheel fitment, running 19×9 in the front and 19×9.5 in the rear. Now that’s not too bad, right? But trust us, for a beefy car like the Mustang GT, you have so much more room for improvement. By upgrading to a 19×9.5 in the front and 19×10 in the rear (with proper tire fitment of course), you can drastically improve handling and acceleration performance.
So why would you want to run a staggered set up on your car?
