    Have a good deal available on staggered 21s. Know I would loose the rotation benefit, but there isn't any reason the staggered 21s wouldn't work well or fit on a 70D right?

    Those staggered tires are expensive and wear quick.

    I wouldn't do it.

    I have S85 with 20" aggressive staggered wheels (9" front, 11.5" rear), I have 30k miles on my tires and they still have 30% treads. My wheels are forged aluminum, super light.

    AWD Teslas are basically neutral handling, hence the same size front and back. the 21's will reduce mileage a small amount and introduce some mild understeer.
    Have you priced 21" tires? On a 70D you will be getting them basically for the look.

    On any MS you will be getting them basically for the look (and expense and fragility and less range and heavier weight).

    No issue, it will work just as it does on a P85/90D since the dimension are all the same.
