Example of 19″ Staggered Wheels
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.
