    I just got an inventory MS 75D that'd 19s on it but I upgraded to 21s. It came with a staggered 21 setup of 245s in the front and 265s in the rear. The OA says the design team chose this setup.
    My question is I won't be able to rotate them normally but is there any benefit to this staggered setup or should I have 245s all around?

    I have staggered. If I had it to do over again, I would not do it. Tires are so much more expensive due to not rotating. But I have RWD, which compounds the issue. I really don't see the value of staggered on a D.

    Though I really love the look. I run 275's on the rear.
