Staggered Wheels... Maybe?

So I was thinking/envying my Roommate's brand new Honda S2000 (i'll post pics later, maybe) when I thought of something...

Has anyone ran staggered Wheels?? Like... this is what I thought up:

Front: 15X8 or 15X10 rims and 32X11.5 tires

Rear: 15X8 or 15X10 rims and 32X12.5 tires.

How do you think this would look? Is it possible? Will it make me lose a hell of a lot of power?

Lastly, do y'alls thing it's even worth it? I think, in my head at least, it'll look pretty good. I dont' know, just a thought...

I have 2 more years until I need to change tires, so y'alls have plenty of time to answer

good luck finding those sized tires i kno you could get 235/70/15 in the front and 275/60/15 in the back both are an inch shorter than stock just diffrent widths. you could easily get a 31x10.5 and a 31x12.5 in procomps and i belive kumohs

I don't see why you'd give up the ability to properly rotate tires just to have two be a little wider. I can see it for racing though.. i like this setup.

you're right, it's good for racing.. etc.

I thought of it just because most of our trucks need traction anyways, and by making the tires wider, it might help. Now mind you, i have a 3.0, i get all the traction i need, but nonetheless, it's an idea.

The S2K are stock, staggered. They also can't rotate properly, but it doesn't seem to be a problem for them.. so yeah.. i don't see a problem with that... Our back tires wear out more anyways (well, for us 2wd peoples)

unless you use directional tires you CAN rotate them to some degree.

but seriously, do y'all really rotate your tires religiously anyways?

to me staggered tires are only good for drag racing... wider on the drive tires adds much more traction over stock which is good for racing but on some cars (g35, rx8, 350z, etc) staggered isnt the best way to go, i think they come staggered from the factory (g35, Z) but it causes some understeer, and when you put the same width up front you get much more balanced out handling

F1 and indy cars have "staggered" tire widths.
