When you say staggered, do you mean different width front and rear or different offset?

They are directional.

And factory Xi sport rims (I think 18 x 8 and 18 x 9's)

Question Tire Sized for Factory Sport 18's, stock or go wider??

stock 18" sport rims.

The rears are 275/35 18

fronts are 245's

I run full winter tires and rims, so can go as wide as the rims and car will fit.

Or just stick with the stock sizes?
