    Hi need some help and opinions regarding VFF103 21x9 ET 35 square or 21x9 ET 35 with 21x10.5 ET 38 in the back. The tires would be 245/35/21 or 245/35/21 with 285/30/21.

    found a pic from a previous thread with the staggered setup.

    21x9 will stick out more 18 mm
    21x10.5 will stick out more 34 mm

    Staggered looks better, but square is cheaper and you can rotate tires. What's more important to you?

    looks...
    I'd prefer the 285's but just a little concerned about rubbing and fitment.

    If AWD, stagged setup will induce significant understeer.
    If RWD, it's less of an issue, but 285 rears will pickup and deposit a lot of road debris on the rear fenders and bumper. You may want to wrap those in PPF.

    I do like the looks of those wheels, though.
    How much do they weigh?

    Love that color, and the blackout looks superb. Hands down is my favorite off all the model s colors. Wish I could have found one when shopping, but settled on 2nd best.

    Personally I’d go square...much prefer to rotate my tires.
