So any wheels on this car (unless you run staggered) will be slightly inwards in the rear on this car? Is running staggered safe on an AWD? Not a big stagger, but like 17x7.5 and 17x8?
If you run the same tires. Like 225/45/17 on all for corners then I dont see why not. I wouldnt run a staggered tire set up like 225/45/17 front and 235/40-45/17 rear. They are not the same height.

Yea "40" is a percentage or ratio. 225/40/18 means that the tire is 225 mm wide, the side wall height is 40% of the width of the tire and it fits on a 18 inch rim. I mean those are the basics. But in the real world those numbers arent exact from manufacturer to manufacturer. For example. The s2000 cam with staggered tires. But when people went to go replace them with the oem size but a different manufacturer. They found out that the front tires were skinnier than other tires with the same size and the rears tires were wider than other tires with the same size.
