Question Z4 2007 3.0i Strong Strut Installed

I installed a strong strut a couple of weeks ago and it has really changed the performance characteristics of my z. It is definitely more responsive, particularly when pushing (not so much now) into a turn. I can also bring the back around in a more controlled way when I lift from the accelerator. This was a 'good' upgrade.

So my question to the speed demons out there - should I stay with 17 / 8 stock wheels or go for a staggered set. Road conditions here are bad (Hudson Valley, NY) and getting worse, and I would really like a decent ride. Also, my z tended to understeer so if someone could provide the logic for the larger wheels on the back of the m models I would appreciate it.
