Square:

con - rear tires are smaller and look not that good, slightly less grip on the rear
pro - you can rotate the wheels very easily if you dont have one direction tires

Staggered:

con - can't rotate around as with square, rear camber will get to the tires faster, tires cost more
pro - better grip, looks better

On my wheels the rear wheels have a deeper lip which looks better. On some wheels you can't really see any difference.

the rear wheels are often deeper or have a deeper concave when you have a staggered setup, if you have the choice go staggered it looks 10000 times better :)

Example square set up;
F: 18x8.5"
R: 18x8.5"

Example staggered set up;
F: 18x8.5"
R: 18X9.5"

I.e. rear wheels usually wider.

And then you have to take into account offset, too.
