You'll have more rubber sticking to the ground in the rear. I had a staggared setup on my Benz...17" AMGs, 7.5" front, 8.5" rear...and you get that cool deep dish look in the rear. The only disadvantage is that you won't be able to rotate all 4 tires.

Most do it for traction and looks.

I have 19x8.5 in the front and 19x10 in the rear. With 235/35zr 19's up front and 265/30zr 19's in the rear.

Not completely true, the main disadvantage is that your car understeers like a pig. Plus, with most of our cars, traction isn't a problem because we don't produce nearly that much power.

225's or 235's all around is ideal for the regular 3's.
