They are nice wheels but weigh literally twice what oz wheels weigh
Staggering means a different size front and rear and in this case it means a 19x9.5 in the front and a 19x10.5 in the rear. You can’t rotate due to different tire size/wheel width. I believe he means the offset was almost identical as within 1mmCaptain oblivious here,
What is staggering tires/wheels? And why does it prevent you from rotating? And where is this '1mm' measured?
Yes the sky has 42mm offset on rear where as these have a 43mm with a 19x10.5Staggering means a different size front and rear and in this case it means a 19x9.5 in the front and a 19x10.5 in the rear.

What wheel and sizes do you have?Captain obvious here, but by going to a staggered setup you lose the ability to rotate your tires. I've had staggered wheels on the 06 for over a decade now, and IF I ever buy a new set of custom wheels I'm going back to a four square setup in order to be able to rotate the tires. YMMV
A long, long time ago a forum vendor (Kappasphere) offered staggered wheels specifically for the Kappa platform. They were called Gravana J2s. Later on forum members discovered that they were made by Monarch wheels, but MW called them 410s. Kappasphere offered sets in both 18s and 19s inches. Finishes included silver centers with polished rims, or black centers with polished rims. Kappashere went out of business years ago, and so has Monarch wheels. I bought mine used and had to settle for 18s. Used wheels rarely come up for sale.What wheel and sizes do you have?
That's a perfect set up, great stantz!I do agree for stock wheels, the clean design matches well with the Solstice. I like these gun metal Enkei wheels too.
I'm also interested to see dark bronze wheels on a silver Sol.
willtheyfit.com stock 55 offset leaves about 17 mm from the tire to the wheel well edge.Can anyone tell if offset on wheels I posted are within a good fitment range?
Large rear wheels/tires give more grip on launch/in a drag race thus why muscle cars use it. A square setup/ all the wheels being the same gives a more consistent grip on corners/ more uniform handling link for readingI personally love the staggered look...the wider rears really help make the car look mean ;-) If I had or wanted to spend the cash, I'd definitely go staggered.
As far as performance, most/many RWD cars have staggered sizes (including F1) so I can't imagine it "hurts" performance (maybe on our car if it's not designed for it, but in general I mean).
I'm not positive but I think these two have staggered...maybe not.
