Not too bad, are you planning on lowering your car at all? That would help the look.

lol, it is lowered... H&R Sport Springs.

Would you suggest a drop here as well? Just messing with you man... I don't like the 100% slammed look where the top of the rim meets the fender. The amount of space here is perfect IMO. To each their own.

Yes, I would always suggest a drop if there's more than an inch between the tires and body...even on an F430.

Example:




It's not slammed, it's not hellaflush...it's just well-executed.

with the exception of very few things, no gap between the fenders and rims always look good! u need to go at least an inch lower.

I always tell people if they want to rock staggered rims, coilovers are a must.

Why does everyone put the larger wheel in the rear? With a front wheel drive all that does is increase rolling resistance and reduce fuel efficiency and acceleration.

Everyone doesn't do it. Those that do, choose to do so because it looks better. There are all sorts of reasons of why not to run a staggered setup on a FWD car, and those that do so anyways don't seem to care. Thanks for your opinion though.

My opinion on staggered on FWD is that its ok as long as the wheels are the same width and tires are the same size. Not a fan of wider tires in the rear of a FWD. Looks good sure, but not good for driving dynamics, which I guess don't matter if you drive your car laid back.

That stallion is amazing!

Are you unsure of the definition of staggered?

You can have different offset wheels and still have the same width and tire size
