I also have a diameter stagger, but on my mustang not my 164S. Not many people swap to a stagger like we have, i have diameter and width 17x9 and 18x10. I didn't chose it, I ended up with this set up after a very long story lol
My experience with this stagger for over a year now is below,
1. Steering sensitivity increase, as well as pot holes throwing the car left or right more.
2. Looks are highly variable. Clean chrome wheels on a nice day and it looks awesome. Dirty wheels on a cloudy day and it looks off. At angles, front, or rear it looks great, but perpendicular it looks miss matched.
3. No wheel rotation is possible, time will tell how that affects the tread.
4. Slower off the line.
5. Great stance, feels very sporty
All and all I like it, but it has downsides for a daily driver. It looks mean on your 164S, I'm a big fan of the black on red.
Do you daily this car? And are you running the same sidewall width both front and rear?
